Stripped

So last Thursday I had a few beers and was riding at the Peel Sessions [post-sprints]. I had a nice fakie line and went to cut a sharp turn when I got pedal strike on my new pedals. Well, the pedal threads being steel and the crank arm threads being forged aluminum, STRIPPED the crank threads clean. I was in awe. Literally, they shaved the threads right off! These were brand new Sugino RDs and I know how to install pedals!

this happened to me- while sprinting away from a stoplight. that's why I won't run RDs again.

I already got a new DS crank... Until Ben's Cycles makes a 144 new Crusher, I'll continue to run these.

Next time I'll just take those corners a bit easier.
