Photos of broken carbon fiber bicycle components.
A rider in the Cat 5 race at Kelly Cup/Bike Jam in Baltimore, crashed near the finish line, unfortunately don't know any more of the story.
Trek put out a bulletin saying to always run a 5mm spacer ON TOP of the stem with their carbon steerers.
They are also running too many spacers for that carbon steerer, which probably means that the frame is too small for the rider if they need that much stack height to get the bars where the rider wants them
There are two Trek madone frame fits: the pro and the 'performance'. The performance has this amount of spacers stock from the factory. It also looks like an FSA stem, which Trek specifically says not to use, cause this can happen.So. Yeah.
This was another one of the Haymarket/Homevisit team Madones that broke at the steerer during the '10 season. Don't think that was in the CAT 5 race, though.
from what i remember hearing, it was at the start of the race, pulling on the bars and starting to pedal and snap. Low speed, no injury.
it was the P12 race.
