You just have to crack em open once in a while.. Abuse them and eventually they’ll fail.
By comparison, over ten years ago, I gave a pair of used Times to a friend. I had never serviced them, he has never serviced them. The other day, I borrowed the bike they were on. They were running as smooth as could be. A tiny little rattle from one of the ‘loops’ that the cleat sits under on one side of the left pedal, but otherwise, perfect.
I know which I’d be buying….Posted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Glad it’s not just me that has had the pedal come clean off the axle.
Looks like it is a pretty common problem, surely they must know about it? Can’t be that hard to solve surely, maybe add a big **** off lock nut to the next versions? Ideally some bearings that last more than six months would be good too.Posted 4 years agonukeSubscriber
I’ve had two Joplin 3 dropper posts, CB ISIS BB and Cobalt headset…Joplins have been back under warranty 3 times each, ISIS BB died rapidly and was replaced under warranty, headset I bought ‘new’ off here and was a warranty replacement of a failed. Even the CB pump I have doesn’t work very well (Pressure gauge is a joke for a start).
…but then there is 2Pure who I’ve had fantastic service from, best warranty experience of any firm I’ve had to deal withPosted 4 years agop8ddyMember
I’m running a Crank Bros Sage headset. Been on the bike circa 2 years and still running great. It’s been a total fit and forget job.
Crank Bros also sent me out a spare crown race for free cos I wanted to experiment with fork setup on my bike.
From my point of view they’ve been utterly superb. Great product, great service. I like em.Posted 4 years ago
