just be glad they aren't carbon, or you might have noticed it at the wrong time!
Sure that they are not carbon?
Well, a mate had the same with his 32UL 's.Had them only for 4700 kms on his bike. He kept on riding with them. The next step are spoke failures. Spokes brake just at the internal nipple edge. Therefore be prepared for deep scratches in your carbon frame inside your chain stays and or seat stays.
I would not ride with them any further.
So this is an "high end non Chinese component failure" then.
