Cielo by Chris King Cross Racer
...I have snapped two DA 7800 cranks! One, like the thread starter at the pedal entry point on the drive side and one half way down crank on non drive side. I have also snapped a Truavativ cheapo crank at pedal entry on drive side. That was the only occasion on which I hit the deck as a result. All those in the past 3 years and it does play on my mind as the consequence of this kind of failure could fairly easily be fatal.
NB: I weight 65kg and use a torque wrench!

My friend, any component can break. I would venture to say most higher end (not necessarily weenie) components do, however, break rarely.

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
Which direction were you headed? Toward Bunyola?
Regardless, it seems like a crazy malfunction. I'm sure KCNC will take care of you.
Enjoy spring in Mallorca!
Supposed to be taking a client up to Puig Major today but its raining so Im staying put!
Frankly I could chase KCNC but having just sold my Kuota I dont have a spare bike so Ive just given it to Gomilla to fix a SRAM crankset on it ASAP (and I get a free hirebike in the meantime!)
It would be a good idea to inspect the area around the pedal/crank interface periodically under magnification.
