Subject: Re: [CR] Overhauling Super Record Ti pedals

Funny thing is I've never disassembled or regreased a Campagnolo pedal ever in spite of riding them for decades. I've got a pair on my off-topic MTB that I pulled off my 1970 Bartali that have seen untold road miles and lots of hard dirt miles that have probably never been serviced since new, are cosmetically beat all to hell and they still spin smooth with no play. Of course I'm firmly in the "if it ain't broke, leave well enough alone" camp. Others actually enjoy taking apart stuff that is still working fine.

I'm curious what prompted you to tear into them.
