This was especially true when it came to picking the frame for BR2, people were surprised I didn't go for a modern style carbon rocket. Early on I broke two 2008 Alpha-Q lightweight carbon steerer tubes carbon forks on BR2. Then this year has compounded my belief. Here is what I've broken this year, without crashing on Little Red, my 4-year old Guru Praemio.
- Two Zipp101 rear hubs made of alloy
- 2009 Ultegra shifters, the left shifter had been malfunctioning for a year or so, then a couple of weeks back the right shifter just didn't.
