Snapped the body of my Time RXS pedals


How did you manage this?

I've seen a few sets of broken rxs come through our shop. All JRA.

I know a guy who bent a Thompson DH seatpost, with his balls.

Ah, the perfect thread for me at the moment...

The FSA-made Cannondale Si carbon cranks on my cross bike just bit the dust. The pedal inserts came loose and the pedals wobbled. Apparently I'm not the only one this has happened to. Out of warranty and I was the second own. Darnit.

I replaced with SRAM Force.

For the records.
Live recorded on the 3rd stage of the Vuelta.
One of the Katusha Team riders' saddle broke. He just threw away the shell and the rails were still clamped in full length on his seat post clamp.
No. Not a Chinese no name saddle.
Broken saddle was a Selle Italia .

This was common when carbon and aluminum inserts first came out. I thought that this kind of thing would be solved by now.

Apparently Devon knows a guy that bent a Thompson seat post with his balls. Is this the same guy? :lol:
