Not to long ago it was the fastners on a bike that were the weakest link. It was fairly common to see snapped bolts or stripped threads while servicing a bike, but not anymore.
With the flood of Carbon fibre and light weight aluminum onto our shores – it is becoming far more common to see bikes and components cracking.
One hasty ‘ham-fisted’ pre-race moment and you could reduce your prized bike or weight saving component to a very expensive paper weight.
Come and visit BMC and view our multiple examples from hairline cracks to catastrophic failure – of ‘how not to do this’
But more importantly, the results could be disastrous! a cracked handlebar could snap right off, mid ride, leaving you with bigger trouble.
