    We've had this thread I think ;) I think he's 100% in the wrong but I can't blame him for trying it. Even if you accept that QR's a flawed system- and tbh, of course it is- any rider care should have prevented this, I have absolutely no idea how you could fail to notice a loose wheel for long enough for it to work completely loose and fall out. Even if you're a mechanical numpty, you should think "something's wrong" and stop. I really feel for the guy but he's basically saying he should have been protected from himself by Fox.

    the only outcome is increased prices for everyone else, cos Fox will have to pay for legal fees and increased public liability insurance,

    Well, hopefully it'll speed the move to the newer spindle standards too, since most (all?) are immune.

  • Nothing is immune from rider error...

    you could weld the axle into the dropouts but if the rider doesn't install it properly then they'll still injure themselves.
  • um... its common sense!
