Default Re: Mapex Raptor VS. Gibralrtar Intruder

How exactly did the bearing housing break? Isn't the bearing housing held within those two posts that are screwed together? I've seen designs like the Pearl Eliminator, where the bearing holder is inside the post... A similar case here, it just looks like it's mounted between those two screws.

Any photographs to show what damage was done? I've seen information about the Raptor pedal (I'm assuming it is this exact one) coming apart and it would be good to look at what happened.

I don't see how having the posts screwed together would effect anything, I just don't see where something could go mechanically wrong from a design perspective. I have seen damaged pedals and often wonder what exactly happened.

I'll admit, I have a selfish motive! :P Was interested in these pedals, have seen a few demos on the internet, they seem really smooth and the price is the clincher. Haven't seen any pictures of a damaged unit though, would be good to have closure, lol :D
