Default Iron Cobra - Bearing Lubricant

Hello!

My pedals need some fine tuning as I have really neglected them since they were purchased and I havent taken the time to set them properly.

I have been advised to use bearing lube in the bearings and hinges etc but not to use WD40.

Can anyone recommend a particular lube to use or indeed avoid?

Thanks

I've always used sewing machine oil. Does the job perfectly.

PTFE / Teflon oil works great. Sewing machine oil is just really thin oil. Its great though.

DON'T use WD40 at all, other than maybe a quick fix on the spring and hook.

Try taking off the chain from the cam and footboard and spin it round and round. I gaurentee you your pedal will play better than ever after about a minute of doing this.
