    It's either possible or it isn't. A dial caliper doesn't lie.

    I would not be so concerned that the BB shell fails....it usually does not lead to the same kind of catastrophic failures that a headtube can cause.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
