    Just replaced them for the second time ln a month and the left one just took a dump today.

    Do you do allot of stream crosses? I use egg beaters and I send them back for rebuild and bar replacement about once a year. I have 2 sets so I just swap them out when I have to send them back.

    Glad I got the cheap-o Candy 1's. Three bikes, 3 sets, no problems so far.

    candies have a reputation for self destruction. i, thankfully (knock on wood), have had good luck with my two pairs.

    Well there is your problem. 26" is an old standard and therefore inferior.
