How do I grease my Speedplays?
After changing over to Speedplay pedals a few months ago I have been aware of the fact you have to grease them occasionally.This has been in the back of my mind for some time and just the other day I had an idea about how to achieve it. Having a strong connection to a farming background and a pretty decent workshop, the idea of using a chainsaw bar grease gun occurred to me.It's a little spring loaded grease gun with a pointy end used for lubricating the rollers in the end of a chainsaw bar.The good news was I happened to have one. I have just tried the technique and it was so successful that I just had to blog about it.Plus I get to take close up photos which I love as well.I reckon there would be plenty of other ways to achieve the same result,this was the one I came up with using the tools I had.

Just found your blogs and the way I found to grease my speedplays was with a syringe that I got from the kids medecine cabinet. I love going Magyver style :-)

Cheers Robert. An excellent idea too.It's always fun to work out your own solutions.More people would likely have a syringe at home than a chainsaw grease gun.
