Had an xtr pedal come off the spindle on me last night, the drive side pedal just came straight off as I was setting off from my house. A close look and it's actually sheared at the threaded end of the spindle.
There's a longish thread on mtbreview where a lot of people are reporting the same thing happening to them - is this something that's happened to people here? Wondering if I can get it warrantied as a known issue.
Bit disappointing as shimano 959s or their equivalents have been the epitome of fit and forget for me over the years. Good job it happened outside my front door really - would be a total ballache having it happen out in the hills.
