These were a replacement for some old gold Turbines that developed a crack down the back of the drive side arm. Don't remember hammering them that bad but thought I would post up the picture.

Oh dear...

I remember I had 2 sets of Toplines that snapped in pretty much exactly the same place as that!

These were replaced again by RaceFace but getting the pedal out was a job and a half with no vice. They gave me a nice set of Deus XC as a replacement which was nice of them.

I was only setting off from the house when this happened and winced when my undercarriage hit the top tube and thought that my pedal had slipped off its post to be honest but when I looked down and found only half a crank I was a little shocked. Had to dig around under a nearby car to find this.
