Alright guys, so I'm not 200+, I'm around 185, but I'm 6'6" and apparently, I pedal too hard. I don't know if it's just that I have too much torque in my long legs, coupled with the fact that I ride fixed, or if I just literally put too much power into my pedals, but I've broken two spindles in the last month. The first one was a fast clean break as I started off from a light. The latest one was a slow, twisting break. I felt the spindle just turn to putty as I powered my way up a hill. When I got to the top I looked down and gave my pedal a little kick, knocking the whole crank arm to the ground with a little shard of spindle still sticking out of it.
Basically I just don't know what to do. I just got a new to me frame from a friend of mine that I'm going to build up, but I want to buy a BB for it that has the fortitude to stand up to my pounding for a good long time. I figured you guys would be the guys to ask what that might be, the scrawny little boys on the SS/FG forum just can't relate.
