it took me five years..... finally broke a Crank Bros pedal.

NDS wing bent out, I assume from my last big crash....(couldn't go mountain biking for 2 months due to hip pain.... but went road biking instead)...... the wing then gets trapped by the aluminum cage, that I couldn't clip in.

 

So... at the LBS today, the owner was telling me that he loathed Crank Bros (even though he sells them) due to their "F-you attitude about their warranty being voided because one of his riders broke a new egg beater ... because he was racing.

 

So... made the switch to Shimano PD-M520 on the MTB (and the cross bike).....

 

Maybe when I go to SoCal for vacation, I should swing by their office and get a warranty exchange... see it if works....

If you bent a pedal during a bad crash, should it be warrantied?

Seems to me that if you are a pedal life in general is pretty tough. Crashes are probably less of a problem than regular pedal strikes are.

technically, the Candy 2's I got last november.

 

The Candy C's I have on my cross bike....I've had those for 3 years... they used to be on the MTB.....before I got a cross bike.

 

DUring my upcoming vacation in SoCal, I tend to do a lot of riding up and down the PCH starting from the Huntington Beach area.....  so I intend to bike down to Laguna Beach

yeah, that makes sense but I question whether busting a pedal during a bad crash is really the manufacturers fault as long as it didn't explode or something.  I am curious if any manufacturer would replace or repair a pedal? Would Shimano?
