    Is there anybody out there rides with Speedplay pedals?

    Iím considering buying a grease gun to lube the spindle bearings and wondered if there was an alternative to the Speedplay grease gun which is around £45.

    I just use a standard grease gun with a narrow point. There is absolutely no need to buy the branded version, it is a rip off. Even a plastic syringe would do.

    BTW, Wahoo have just brought out their updated versions of Speedplay pedals. Maintenance free apparently.

    Speedplay frog user over here. I just use a simple£10 refillable needle point gun. You know the type, one you put over the pastic cap of grease tub and draw up a chamber full with the plunger. Ace pedals and I relube every month.takes seconds.

    Nice run out today. Hailstones early on, but the sun came out later.

    Malcolm Borg 26 tubeless new wheels arrived on Thursday. I didnt realise my carbon bike could feel firmer! But it does. The wheels and tyres feel so responsive on the hills and when accelerating. Thanks to those on here who chipped in with wheel recommendations. Now all I need to do is find another gear to keep up with my wife on her new Specialised Vado SL 😃🚴*♂️🚴*♂️

    Rode the gravel bike to Winchester and back. Temperature stayed below 5c all day and then at 80 mile point it started to snow, then hail, then rain.

    Still perfect.

    Yes thats the only obvious branding. The side walls have a Borg logo but its a gloss black on a matt black, so unless you are looking for it you will never see it. It certainly contrasts with Zipp Grammo or Cosmic logos.

    After many years of ďnewĒ disk braked bikes I had forgotten what a nice set of polished rims were like. However a few 20% decents at the weekend have taken the shine off.

    At Bedford on Sunday, qualifier for 2022 World Championships Duathlon in Australia. As I had a "Pre Qualified" from a win last year, I could "enjoy" the event, despite the cold. PS - note running shoes.It was a sprint event, and that saved me about 1.5 minutes in the two transitions on a flat course.
