Are you the original owner? If so, get in touch with Middleburn - they have a lifetime warranty and Middleburn are lovely people to deal with, mainly because they know they make excellent kit.

Worth a try, anyway.

My Rs-3's failed a couple of years ago, while track standing at some traffic lights. A loud bang and a slightly shocked string of expletives followed...

Yup, anyone running any make of cranks with the tapered hole orientated this way needs to examine them regularly or be prepared to take a flight :)


All the Shimano and Sugino ones had the taper at 45 degrees just like the original Middleburns. They just left a bit more metal round them.. :wink:

That's odd - I contacted them on Monday about sourcing a replacement LHS crank (don't ask, my fault :oops: ) and they replied at 21:45!
