This is the first one I’ve seen advertised.

Snapped Crank

So the latest bit of news in my second hand Brompton saga was this mornings snapped crank. Luckily about half a mile away from home so I could walk it back and set off for work again… looks very much like there was metal fatigue or a crack there already from the dirt engrained in the scar.

All a bit disappointing really, had a good 15 mile run on it on Saturday… if anyone is London based and has the tools to teach me how to change this myself I’d be very interested!

Popped out for a short bike ride down to the Olympic Park area earlier today – the April weather is making for some fantastic skies. I hope it’s like this during the games!
