theyre notorious for it. Might be low cleats but try running a little electricians tape around the pedal body, may do nothing but worth a try.

I remember someone posting on here who had bought some new LOOK cleats that apparently addressed the squeak problem. Made with teflon or something from memory. However I cant remember hearing if it solved the problem or not.

Pedal-cleat interface is the most common cause. Try rubbing an old low-tech candle where they meet.

I've tried these cleats with teflon - so far they've been great, no squeak
at all. Here's a link to show what they look like. They're available in oz
too but this is a good pic to show the difference from the normal red cleat.
I got mine from my regular bike shop in WA.

A quick Pssst! of WD40 on the pedals AND cleats used to do the trick for me. I got so fed up I changed to SPD-SL pedals and have not heard a squeek since,
