    Anyone have a suggestion where to find a reasonable priced one? No one that carries the pedals (online) seems to bother to carry the grease gun and Speedplay says these are supposed to be greased each month, or so.

    You can buy it straight through Speedplay. Just give them a call.

    Grease them up every 1000-2000 miles or after a ride in the rain.

    My LBS carries the Pedros grease injector. The pump and a screw-on tube of grease is about $20 at my LBS. Really makes the job easy. Before I got the injector, was just using a 10cc insulin syringe. It worked OK, but messy to load with grease and couldn't generate quite as much pressure with it.

    Speedplay instructions say to relube every 2000 miles, but one of their techs told me on the phone that a 1000 mile interval is better.

    I use one that I bought for my chainsaw a few years back. Works very well.

    You can use regular mini grease gun that you can buy from Home Depot. It works well on Speedplay Pedals.

    Hadn't thought about one from HD. Great idea, but I ordered a Pedro's gun from Performance for about $15 (after a $20 off $50 coupon) including a tube of grease. We'll see if it works.
