    Pictures of things broken/damaged at racing venues.

    The Tarmac. I don't know where or how this happed. I suspect Paris Roubaix juniors may have helped fatigue things.

    Yeah, I'm not really interested in posting pictures of broken things from sponsors, even if I'm not getting free stuff. Biting the hand that feeds you and what not.
    Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try \ you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

    Heh, i appreciate this thread.

    This is a bike as seen after a high speed crash(there were like 6 of us involved?). My speedometer went from ~35 to 0 but I had scrubbed a decent amount of speed, I would suspect he was doing over 40 when he went down and a bunch of people landed on his bike. I was going to hide the Trek logo but they're the only ones that would dare use that paint scheme, and realistically no bike would come out of that situation unscathed so I don't feel like this reflects badly on the manufacturer.

    No. I mean, the hard pedal strike 300m from the finish ended my chance of doing well, and didn't make me any friends, but I did finish. The spring blade thing didn't come out until I wiggled it after the finish.

    It's the spring. Without it the pedal just flops open.

    I agree. Replaced with Shimano pedals.



    [edit] FWIW they don't manufacture these pedals any more. The Blade 2 has the spring in the center.

    stripped the brake shoe on my tririg omega break last night. cannibalized a sram red brake shoe from my race bike for today's ride. Super annoying. There's a reason every other company had a threaded nut thingy and doesn't put threads in the aluminum brake shoe directly.

    @globecanvas - this is what happens when you really corner tightly.

    No - not really valid as was not racing. But...was riding on tandem with wife - say 1995ish and they had an unmarked ditch cutting trough under a train overpass (for locals Las Pulgas Road leaving the base) in the shadows. We were on double Spinergys and hit the ridge at about 30 mph as both wheels asploded. Front kinda stayed together back collapsed completely and left rear derailleur and crank dragging on ground. Construction company was rather quick to pay for everything. As we stayed up there was just replacement cost. They wanted the wheels, but I kept the crank.
