Add this to my Scarab's seals failing early and the replacement axles squeaking a lot I think I'll pop my Saint pedals back on the big bike.
I'm fat and jump to flat all the time.
I am only offering a public service announcement. I can't say anything is going to fail.
I prefer to forget about stuff like that. Biking is expensive enough without replacing perfectly good parts out of unwarranted fear of one off failure.
I have never worried about my pedals failing or handlebars. But, I typically swap my handle bar out on the bikes I ride the most.
A pedal failing has never been something I would worry about, especially with the amount I actually ride in the park. But, I do spend big $ on good gear specifically to avoid replacing my gear too often. I would rather spend on something nice vs spending it twice.
I managed to eat crap in front of my 11yr old demonstrating the trail feature because of a mechanical failure. She found the pedal up the trail from where I was unconscious. I hit the line at my full speed and was planning on coaching her in the drop zones as I had just bought her a new FS bike.
Now I have a kid who may be a little leary of riding. So, next time in the park, I will have to hit the same line again.
