Another one here, happened yesterday after around 5000km. No damage to black spokes, no warning leading up to failure. Taking it to a CSC tomorrow and will update with progress.

Same failure point as all listed above, another data point to add to this conversation.

I'm of the opinion that by now we should be very hesistant to keep on pushing the "user-error" line.

Not saying this is a dramatic issue, but that part certainly looks suspect. And if not it's more vulnerable than most other parts.

Djo, which part of the mech actually broke? A friends has broken where the bottom composite part hinges on the parallelogram, after 20 miles.

Dude, he posted that a year and a half ago and hasn't logged on to the forum since May.
