- xtr pedal failure – known issue?
Had an xtr pedal come off the spindle on me last night, the drive side pedal just came straight off as I was setting off from my house. A close look and it’s actually sheared at the threaded end of the spindle.
There’s a longish thread on mtbreview where a lot of people are reporting the same thing happening to them – is this something that’s happened to people here? Wondering if I can get it warrantied as a known issue.
Bit disappointing as shimano 959s or their equivalents have been the epitome of fit and forget for me over the years. Good job it happened outside my front door really – would be a total ballache having it happen out in the hills.Posted 5 years agoFortunateson09Member
I think I’ve seen a thread on here about it, but maybe not.
My drive side pedal fell off, gouging a good bit of my leg as it went. Madison refused to warranty it, citing ‘incorrect maintenance’ which I didn’t buy, but apparently their word is final. Pretty miffed but it happened ages ago and I can’t be bothered pursuing it any further…Posted 5 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
its been known to happen once or twice…
2 year warranty on shimano parts and never heard anyone have a problem getting XTR pedals changed. Warranty replacement and sell em?Posted 5 years agorotelMember
Had drive side pedal fail on me today in same way, XTR expensive and dangerous lucky it happened on a fire road. I’ll be looking for a refund too many XTR pedals have failed (Shimano should be recalling them). XT version seem to be ok?
shame because it’s the first Shimano component I’ve had let me downPosted 4 years agoFurrnerMember
Too much grease that way and the seal will pop out letting grease out and crap in.
I am on my third set, not one has lasted more than 500 miles with one pair dying in under 200 miles. They have not been used in wet conditions, dry weather only and on each set the bearings have taken a crap. Very poor considering the cheap as chips Wellgos they replaced had lasted over 8 years and many thousands of miles in the same conditions.Posted 4 years ago
