    Looks like metal fatigue to me, but your mention of mind powers made me realize that the most obvious difference between metal fatigue and mental fatigue is the letter N, and Ninja begins with N. You may be on to something. Maybe not

    So claiming that it failed due the torque applied by my ego wouldn't pass muster then.

    It's a fatigue failure, not an ultimate strength failure. Fatigue failures happen at far lower stress levels than the ultimate strength of a material, sometimes as litle as 10%, but over millions of cycles. That means that your ego torque wasn't too much for the crank to handle all at once, you had to apply it over and over millions of times before the crank got annoyed and gave up. Something like this: "Man this guy pisses me off. If i just start to crack a little, maybe he'll take me off this bike and I won't have to listen to him anymore, but I'll still be in one piece."

    So it couldn't handle the superior mind tools combined with the sheer awesomness of post count.

    My analysis is as such: If that is a left hand crank arm it broke due to awesome pedaling forces. If it is a right hand crank arm it broke due to general hackery.

    I had to click the link to see if that was legit.

    When I saw name so close to "clavicle" on an ultralightweight carbon part, I falsely detected shenanigans.

    It is indeed a right hand crank. However the 20 years of data show that the right crank always receives more torque due to that being the dominant leg. This means that it is the stronger.



    The minions atTeam NFI has found a much simpler solution and more cost effective solution.
