Subject: [CR] Interesting Article on Pedal Failure


Forgive me, Dale, if this is an off-topic post. I think it could pertain to any vintage.

Here is a link to an article from Design News, June 2010 about "Fracture Mechanics and Bicycle Pedals".

http://www.designnews.com/blog/Made_by_Monkeys/39349-Classic_fatigue_fracture_causes_bicycle_accident_leads_to_lack_of_consortium_lawsuit.php

You may have to copy the whole link and paste it into your browser. You could, also, navigate to http://www.designnews.com, find the archive table of contents, select the June 2010 issue and search for "fracture mechanics". The first reference will take you right to the article. I could also scan it for anyone that has difficulties.

Thank you,
