I cant believe they snapped. Right under the right arm rest. It is still holding on so I was able to ride the rest of the way in. Carbon Fiber doesnt just sheer off I guess.

I thought these things were bullet proof.

Now I have to see about warranty. These things are 3 years old.

Great!!!

I will take a picture of where it snapped later today.

You might learn something by a close inspection of the fracture point. It would not be surprising to find a stress riser of some sort - perhaps something has sawed a notch in the part.

You might want to watch that seat tube. It looks like it's about to go too. :D

There is no warranty on these things at all. 300 bucks gone!!!

This really sucks.

These (FSA) were a year old used less than 2 hrs per week when they broke.

I hate to be the one to say it (because it sucks) but these components are not even CLOSE to being designed for daily beat and being left chained outside. Sorry they broke though, that is scary!
