Has anybody experienced a failure with their Hepco Becker crash bars?



Someone had pointed this out to me several weeks ago, and I honestly hadn't noticed it. I did have the bike fall over in my driveway which is gravel and grass, but I don't know if that is why this happened.

I just check all the welds on my HB bars, and all seems fine to me.

They've been on for a little over a year/8,000 miles, and have never been "tested".

I'd contact HB or the place your purchased them from to see if anything can be done.

BTD.

I heard that problem occured only with early versions of the HB crashbars and had been corrected in later versions(?).

My left one did the same thing a while back (posted some pics then). I sent pics to Amotostuff where I got them and they sent me a replacement. If you reach down and grab one while riding you'll note there's a good bit of vibration in them so I kinda figured it would happen at some point. I'm just hoping it doesn't again.

i was using frame sliders, but thought the crashbars might be better, but maybe i could add some vibration isolation.
