The pair I received felt a little tight out of the box, so I decided to repack the bearings. I soon discovered these Wellgos do not have the notched washer meant to keep the adjustable cone in place, as is typically found in traditional loose ball pedals.
Just to clarify, the product description states they are "sealed", but this only means the plastic dust cap is pressed in and doesn't have an obvious way to remove it. (Use the tip of a knife blade.) The pedals have loose balls, an adjustable cone and a locknut.
My solution / hack was to flatten the end of an old spoke with a hammer. I was able to slide the thin flat blade between the cone and the wall of the pedal body and hold the cone in place while tightening down the locknut with a socket wrench.
The pedals feel perfectly smooth after about 100 miles of riding and I'm ready to call the hack a success. I'll just go back in with a flattened spoke and socket wrench should they loosen up again.
The pedals would have been usable without the adjustment, and at this price point they are obviously intended as disposable, non-adjustable pedals. Nonetheless if you're frugal and like fiddling with tools you can sort of have your cake and eat it too with these Wellgos.
