For Vector 3 users, has anyone had issues with one of the pedals “sticking”? I have dual-sided Vector3, roughly a year old with probably 3500 miles or so on them. I noticed on an outisde ride that my right pedal wasn’t spinning freely when I would unclip; the left pedal spins freely. This weekend, I removed the pedal and conducted the lubrication procedure in accordance with the video on Garmin’s website. Prior to lubrication as I was disassembling the pedal, I noticed that the pedal would spin freely when I loosened the screws that held the electronic connection into the spindle inside the pedal. This led me to believe that it’s not a lubrication issue.
I completed the lubrication per the video’s instructions, and reinstalled the electronic connections. I left the screws for the electronic connection about 1/4 turn loose and the pedal spun freely about the spindle. I’ve ridden twice since conducting the maintenance, and again the pedal is binding to where it spins under force, but doesn’t spin freely. I haven’t tried backing off the battery cover or anything like that since re-installing. I’ve literally not touched the pedals other than riding them, and the right pedal is not spinning freely again.
I’m concerned I’m losing “watts” to unnecessary friction here. Anyone have a similar experience with these pedals? Thoughts on a solution?
