The only logical question in this instance would be - does shimano use an inferior bonding agent than jb weld?2lo8 wrote:Drillium is taking an overbuilt part, lightening it, not riding it much or at least not on the training bike, and not being surprised it breaks if it does. If done right, it's material removed in low stress areas, rather than removing material in high stress areas already prone to failure. This is taking a part that has failed, and attempting a fix that is worse than the factory method which already failed, and expecting the inferior fix to work better.
There is no way in which these two things are comparable, even if Shimano screwed up big time. It being a bicycle has nothing to do with whether or not failures happen, as evidenced by the fact that these cranks are on bicycles, and also fail, meaning it being a bicycle didn't prevent them from failing the first time.
Neither is a logical argument for JB welding cranks back together.
The only certainty I have is that I don't know.
What I do know first hand is that shimano's glue must be sh1t if it fails.
Have you seen any hollowtech crank arms repaired with jb weld fail?
So assuming that jb weld is an inferior bonding agent, to an unknown bonding agent which failed first, is stupid logic, sorry.
As far as drillium goes, I'm not that old, can't say I believe you, heh.
