    Pedal Insert Loose on XX1 Crank

    I can't believe it...after 125mi the pedal insert on the drive side crank arm is loose. I looked at the crankarm boot, and there wasn't any deep scratch, and with the crankset being only 125mi old, I don't recall hitting anything. The pedal was tightened according to torque specifications (48-54 N∙m - p. 41 from https://www.sram.com/sites/default/f...e_manual_0.pdf). Actually, I recall thinking that torque was too high and went with a little less. Anyhow, has anyone else come across this issue? I hope SRAM warranties this and quickly!

    SRAM stepped up and warrantied the crank. Kuddos to SRAM! I ran the torque specs by the guys at the LBS, and they agree that the torque is too high for tightening a pedal. I'm going to do the usual snug up + 1/16 of a turn.
