Shimano is recalling 760K pairs of DA & Ultegra cranks due to failures.....the actual reported failure rate is still astonishingly small (less than 1%), but the number of reports is getting close to 5K incidents.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

An unhappy memory: had a French crank arm fracture on a 6 year old lightly used and never crashed Peugeot PXN-10 while pedaling up a steep pass about 30-35 years ago. Lucky that I didn’t crash or get a nasty laceration. I one pedaled and coasted 8 miles back to a LBS, who fortunately had a suitable and affordable replacement in their used parts bin. Then back up and over the climb (my car was on the other side), strictly seated this time.

In the 90's I broke not one but 2 sets (one of them a replacement) of "Caramba" cranks. Worst POS I've ever put on a bike.
