    I broke 2 sets. Both in the middle of the arm. I have a climber team mate who also broke a set.

    These may be from a different batch but I'll never trust their cranks again.

    I didn't know him, just another guy on a group ride, but I saw one of those Ritcheys break as well. Not sure if it was that exact model, it was a triple, it was a heavy guy, maybe 190 pounds, and it snapped about 2.5" down from the pedal hole.
    Not too much to say here

    Dang. I like the looks of those Ritchey's and was eyeing a double. Dang.
