A question for those of you who have had failures - was the failure preceded by the infamous 'creaking' or 'cracking' sound? I'm just wondering whether to trust these cranks on rides taking me more than a $25 cab ride from my car.... :?

I think I'll take a VERY close look at these before I go on another long ride.... :wink:

Mine too, but my failure at the bb insert would have been very difficult to inspect prior to the failure. Fortunately it was a slow turning and not catastrophic.
