To be sure, they are light & sturdy & I like 'em too - but I should prolly mention they can be somewhat brittle & I've now cracked two of the rear ones at the bottom bracket mount.

I suspect it's a combination of too long an unsupported section behind the stays (vibration) & moderate to extreme cold... admittedly the latter may not apply to all lol

Fortunately, it's mostly a mild annoyance & no real safety hazard, I've also not managed to bust a front - but as they're on an ebike with "no vibration" I thought I'd mention it is all
