No problems with the record/ second stiffest cranks i've ever used w/ tighter q factor than time !
It's still largely manual work and all you need is one lazy employee who decides his job would be easier doing the layup his way.

My opinion is that carbon fiber is not a material with universal applications in cycling. It has it's place, just not everywhere.
I ride a carbon bike with carbon wheels.

That's true, it really doesn't fatigue, but inproper resin penetration and curing will get worse with time and use.
Porosity is problem with metal castings, but the industry has dealt with this very well.
Of course, this could all just be very bad luck.
I will replace the time crank set with another brand. I'm glad I did not have a failure while riding.
2 thumbs down for Time cranks.
