It is a running joke amongst bike folk to speak of offsetting someone’s crankarms so the pedals are not right across from each other where they should be.

So when this bike came through the door we suspected alcohol and good natured foul play. But in all honesty, it was just a snapped bottom bracket spindle!

How many watts do you suppose the rider was producing at the moment of failure? Who cares, it just made him late for work. That’s commuter power.
