    longterm RS owners with no BB frame crack issues?

    I'm eyeing a secondhand 2009 RS with 1000+ k's on it.

    Who out there has done plenty of miles/k's on their RS, with no BB frame crack issues?

    I cracked 2 2010 RS frames around the BB, I get the feeling that most of the problem was maybe one batch made in 2010 because many earlier models are still going strong with no issues. Up end the bike, the s/n contains the year of manufacture.

    Cervelo had no more RS frames to give me so I got a R3 with BBright BB and touch wood, so far so good.

    Moved on, as in the end I didn't want to risk it.

    I've put 10000kms on mine since noticing the using superficial, circumferential cracks, and the BB is still rock solid, with no creaking when on the power...
