Bontrager Carbon Fiber Fork Failure

Over a Cozy Beehive, there was a photo and some analysis of a carbon fork failure.
I had an accident in May where the actual blades suddenly failed. It was a bontrager carbon fiber fork. The bike was a friend's, and had been ridden quite a bit. It failed right as I got up to sprint. Nonetheless, it was on flat ground, and wasn't involved in a crash.

Yeah me too. My old school steel bikes in the garage are looking better every day.

My new school carbon bike sports a carbon steerer tube as well. I may need to develop x-ray vision to keep an eye on it....
