I did this to my crank on the way into work today. I was in top gear hammering it out of the saddle and it bent! I'm quite big muscular build 6.2 in the high 15s. It a campy xenon which I know is not the pinnacle of chainsets but is this normal? Its about 18months old and I've recently been doing a lot of interval work in top gear to try improve my power and it seems to be working alas not without its casualties.
Have any of you had the same thing happen? Do you think its just wear? Are the more expensive camps stronger? I guess they would be. Any advice appreciated (apart from knocking the pies on the head)
