Previous a number of post also discussed that the carbon spring of fibula were defectively broken, finally I also encountered during cleaning process. Since I contacted them but in vain, I try to seek for alternatives for the spring and I find out this post: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_ ... 3992300172

I tried to get in touch with the op but no reply, so I ordered some titanium rod and brought to factory for bending works. Results as shown in photo the return capability of spring is satisfied however the diameter in a bit overed....

Just buy another 2.5-2mm ti rods and pending for bending, will update the post after replacement completed

Hi there.
I have a thread on here somewhere as my carbon spring broke to.
I just went onto their website and ordered two, one for spare plus it was the same high postage price anyway. I didn't have any luck contacting them hence going onto the website.
Cheers

Update: I bending two sizes titanium rods, 2.5mm and 2mm. I found 2mm spring would have better hand feeling.

Further update after installation on frame and realistic application

Well done. How much weight does the ti spring add versus the stock carbon?

Just wondering whether anyone recently bought the Fibula brakes that can give some feedback about these prior issues to see whether they have been resolved by THM?
