I have a pair of almost new; well done 300, miles or so, new-ish Shimano 105 pedals fitted to my Cube! The right pedal still has a wee bit of stiffness in it (as I would expect) for new-ish pedals, turns nicely - but doesn't spin freely.
Now, the left pedal has free'd up quickly and spins without any effort; also, I've noticed that there is - what appears to be GREASE coming out of the axle near the nurled "SEALED" nut. Not sure there should be grease coming from the axle; and squeezing it's way out? also seems that the pedal has become super slick spinning on it's axis, far too quickly. Any thoughts on this? or am I being overly cautious about it; and worrying un-necessarily? I realise the 105 is a maintenance free pedal, but the right (stiffer) pedal has no grease coming from it; and is nowhere as slick as the left pedal. BTW I like riding with these pedals, so just a concern over the grease and free running of the left pedal.
Would appreciate your view of this situation.
