When my handle bars snapped. No warning just a crack noise.  No reason for it the path around Haley park (North Cardiff) is a little bumpy but nothing serious. With hindsight I feel I should of handled the situation better,  The sudden surprising loss of the right side steering resulted in a  left turn.  Luckily I had a soft stop  :) in a clump of stingy nettles  :(   I pulled the bike out  and continued onto the bike shop instead of home.  A few days later I got a call from the shop saying they couldn't get the bars I wanted in the old size so I changed the stem to 31.8mm also.

... And it's been replaced under warranty.
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. It has been too many days since I have ridden through the night with a brevet card in my pocket...
