Needless to say.... not good! We were a few miles from the end of our ride too.... so I had to start hoofin it, while Robin rode home to get the car. My "get some miles in before work ride" turned out to be a little longer than initially expected Now I have to wait on Time to send a new one... ugh..... But, at least I didn't get hurt. I'm thankful this didn't happen in a race. That could have been messy. I'm still not really sure how I managed to keep the bike upright when it let go.... Maybe that MTB riding I've been doing has paid off a little

I'm getting less convinced about the suitability of carbon for all bike parts.
It was crazy... all 5 just went at once.... *BANG*! No creaking before hand or anything. They were abotu 2 months old. I'm considering selling the new ones when they come in, and getting some Campy Record 07 cranks instead. After seeing the Chorus 07 cranks that I put on my fiance's bike.... I can't imaging they woudl EVER fail like this.

I know... I've seen those same pics. I was hoping I'd have better luck I guess! I am not overly heavy, at 175 lbs. The cranks were not old either and I take very good care of my gear. Stuff just happens sometimes.... I guess.
I'm getting more and more convinced (third failing crankset in a short period) that the stronglight carbon products are unsafe and just not worth the money (stopped selling it some time ago.....)

Yeah, I too would be very wary of full carbon tabs. Does anyone know if the 07 Record cranks have full carbon tabs?
Glad you are unhurt.
Good question , but I`m probably still going with Campa 07 , I`ll just never get out of the saddle
