Are drives still breaking?


That was resolved a few years ago. It was primarily inconsistent materials and hardness. We addressed some quality control issues with our supplier and made a change to the cranks wall thickness to add significant strength. Not a problem anymore.

Two truths, Matt:

Rumor will always outlive fact.

Some people can break an anvil.
