I'm an idiot. I just pulled into a friend's garage with my brand new Damocles attached to the roof rack. It is a dark dark day and I will never forget the sound of the carbon cracking. The only good news is that since I bought it with AMEX they have 90 day accidental damage protection so they are covering $1000 dollars but it still sucks. Definitely won't make that mistake again. To every one with roof racks....beware. This could be you.
