My speed plays have completely seized up due to not having seen a grease gun in some time...the bearings need replacing.
Can anyone recommend a repairer?
Is it a job I could do myself?

Cheers!

I regrease mine semi regularly just using a small syringe (you don't need a grease gun). It's very easy to do.

A quick google found this for taking them apart:

An you can get new bearings quite cheaply (assuming that is what has failed, i guess you won't know till you open it up...).

Will be curious as to how you go as I have a set of speedplay pedals in my trainer bike i need to service soon.

Cheers,
Dave

Thanks heaps Dave! :D
I've already ordered some bearings on Wiggle and should arrive soon. The info you posted will be invaluable In the future though.
From what I've seen on YouTube the repair job doesn't look too complicated. The instructions will be very handy!
Cheers, Adrian.

OK...I've dismantled the pedals. This took a bit of time because I stripped the Hex bolt on the end of the spindle on one pedal. I'll need to get new screws...maybe Ti?
I discovered that the bearings in one pedal had a lot of rust and had completely seized up.
I've got brand new bearings and have ordered some Ti spindles...why not?! I doubt the decrease in weight will make me into a Cadel Evans but it's fun to experiment with a little bit of a gratuitous upgrade!
When I get the spindles and screws I'll post another update. So far the rebuild is looking pretty straight forward. Reassembly shouldn't be hard.
