All of Look pedals have small amount of play. You can even pull the pedal side ways !
This is the case since 1st generation of KEO came out several years back. I'[ve the latest BLADE as well...........same issue.
In anycase, I don't find LOOK Blade offers any improvement at ALL! The cleat design remains the same and the feel is just not SOLID enough in comparison to TIME ICLIC or even the TIME RXS Ti/Stainless Steel model.
LOOK should have redesign the cleat!!!!
Try the Shimano Dura Ace Pedal 7810 and tells me what the difference between Shimano and LOOK! I can tell you world difference in terms of feeling.........the Shimano is ROCK SOLID! The Shimano CARBON pedal should be available by Q3 to Q4 2010 base on sources from Japan.............
Title says it all really... anyone else had their Blades bearing exhibit a small amount of play or rock between the padal body and axle withing the forst 75kms of use (they were soid and smoth when new out of the box...)
Use was in dry road conditions, 26C, undulating not hilly.
Play was detectd after a single 75kms commute to work....
I am likely to follow up with LOOK and see what they come back with... I'll post the response in due course.
