I have had my Storck power arms for 2 years. The carbon fiber has cracked and caused the pedal insert to become loose. Anyone have or heard of this problem? Any fixes?

Have you contacted the shop you bought them from?

If you have without any solution, try contacting Storck directly.

I know this complaint on Storck cranks (actually they are pruduced by a german firm that also produces the organic, Stilletto and the power arms).
On the German Tour site there are some links ond the braking of Power Arms on this exact spot.

First: no there is no way they can be repaired!
Second: are you sure they are two years old because this complaint was only known to me for cranks that where produced over three years ago (see my earlier remarks on carbon parts save for max three years)
And last: if you're the first owner you won't have a problem because Marcus Storck won't give trouble with replacing it for a new one.
If you don't have a date purchase note you could probably forget it since hardly any firm would warrant their productw without it.
