No Carbon Wednesday: Cranks Are Still Falling Off


Remember when I reported there was a global pandemic of cranks falling off. It's still going on. Here's a report from Paul:
Here's a shot of my (insert brand here) bottom bracket that was kind enough to break off. What the photo can't show is that there's a crack extending up the spindle, too, right up inside the bearing race. And yes, that's a shard of BB spindle sticking out of the crankarm!

That happened to me, and the protruding spindle shard sliced my knee open, as my leg continued downwards when the BB broke. Blood everywhere!
