snapped bolt, crushed wire
I watched a guy snap a bolt with a torque wrench yesterday it was on a 3ttt arx team stem. He also crunched my flight deck wire in between the stem and bar, so perhaps the slight misalighnment caused the snapping. The good part was that is was not my stem. I know the guy and people kept coming in with bikes so I did not point out the crunched wires. It still worked and I have extra wires, but I just put on new bar tape and got everything the way I like it. Its like, now I remember why I don't trust anyone but myself to work on my bike.
edit update, went for a ride today and the wire is severed! Arrgggggggggghhhh.
