Things that break - Part 2, A Black Museum
First - an example of a crank about to fail. This is a Campag Strada, and I think I was lucky to spot this crack before it caused trouble - shows the virtue of cleaning your bike!
I hope the photo is good enough for you to be able to see the crack, which is between the two black marks.
Same happened to my 1970s Ofmega crankset last summer. Spotted whilst cleaning after riding some Yorkshire hills.
Well spotted, No nowt.
An excellent example of the wisdom of cleaning your bike!
