Today’s QT comes to us from Dave Champlin and really is a “quick” tip. Short and sweet, but tried and true. Dave wrote:
Spray dry Teflon lubricant on pedals/cleats (after cleaning). This lets the float / pivot work freely and assists clipping in / out.
[I mentioned to Dave that Finish Line recently launched Pedal and Cleat Dry Film Lubricant specifically for this purpose. — J.M.]
I use DuPont Teflon Multi Use lubricant. But interesting that Finish Line caught on. Apparently I’m not the only one!
If you have an idea for a QT, fire away. We’re always looking for good info we can share with fellow roadies. We would love to hear from you with any suggestions you have. Contact us by clicking Quick Tips Ideas.

Hi, I use wd40 silicon spray on my pedals, I started this when commuting last winter and with all the water and muck on the bike path the pedals totally stopped engaging and when it did took me 1/2 mile to disengage. Silicon spray was handy when I got home and did the job.
Have now got some better pedals xtr xc but don’t want to ruin them with the wrong lube.
