I have some Look Keo Blade 2 pedals, exactly these ones:

On the most part the pedals are in excellent condition, including internals... except the big main bearing closest to the cranks which is utterly shot. I opened up the pedals to find the outer shell of the bearing cracked, and effectively fell away when I poked about. The rest of the axle looks like new.

The ‘inner ring’ of the bearing remains in place, but seems integral to the axle. I can’t get it off, there is nowhere to drift/push it from.

Does anybody know whether this bearing is replaceable, or whether I have to replace the whole axle with bearing installed, and either way where to buy the spares? Any pointers to how to service (the YouTube videos don’t show bearing replacement).

  • Looks like bearing inside the body is not replaceable.

    If you can remove the broken bearing - just measure it, and see if you can find a replacement somewhere. That should be cheaper than buying new spindles. I would think that it is only pressed on the the spindle.

    Thanks for finding that, looks like that’s what i’ll have to do. Either that or switch back to easily serviceable and cheap shimano pedals...

    Annoyingly, it seems the inner race of the bearing is not simple and is integral with other parts of the Spindle. Hard to explain. I was hoping to just knock the old bearing off and find a replacement.
