    Swapping Pedals?

    I'm putting my spd's on my other bike and keeping one with flats. What type of grease do I need to use? The reason I ask is when I got them they greased them for me and I didn't see any for sale at the LBS. I didn't know what to look for a the auto part store or if I needed to use grease for bikes?

    Maybe I wasn't clean on what I was asking. The grease is to keep the pedals from freezing on the cranks so I can get them back off.

    Really you are better off with some antisieze....

    but of course any grease is better than nothing.

    well water proof is better....

    I just didn't know if I could use antisieze or grease from the auto parts store and be ok.

    You should be 100% fine. I suggest the antiseize route as it is specifically designed to do just that. A simple thin coating should do fine with a re-application done yearly.
