Crank failure. Halfords CB TEAMCARBON
New to this site and looking for some expert tips and advice. I'm a commuter and sportive rider.
have recently bought a Boardman 2014 Team Carbon with FSA Gossamer Compact 50/34t Chainset with PF30 Bottom Bracket. from Halfords in April.. Not 5,weeks in the non drive crank came away from the bottom bracket whilst climbing a hill.. Took a tumble and bruised everything that hit the road. Got a real fright.
Looked like a stripped bolt thread..Contacted FSA who said probably been tightened past the recommended torque. Halfords replaced the bolt and crank but are sending the part away before engaging me in conversation about compensation?
Anyone had anything similar happen and what to do next? Blame = claim. Injury lawyers for you! That's if Halfords accept liability but can't see it
