Hi WW friends,

I test a lot of bikes for several magazines and due to that, I swap my 6800 pedals from one bike to another pretty often. About two weeks ago Trek gave me the new Domane for testing; I took my pedals off my Tarmac, and I've noticed that the axles are not straight in both pedals, they wobble when I install or uninstall them.
I know that Shimano will change it in one blink of an eye, but I'm very curious if anybody had this problem before

Mine are starting to do that. It's only obvious when you're holding the pedal stationary in one hand and threading it in with the other hand. That said it spins fine so I'm still using them, hoping they last another couple thousand km.
