You wouldn't be brushing it off if you broke your collar bone... 1500-2000 km on a bb spindle!... seen bmx spindles go from big hits but that is just a POS.

Interesting bit of physics:

An adult male cyclist can produce about the same torque as a small 4 cylinder car.

So if you could spin at 3,000 rpm you would be just as powerful.
I'll have to work on my cadence.

Amen to that. It is kinda funny, but it could also have had much more serious consequences.

And it could still have serious consequences in the future. So why would you want another no-name el-cheapo one? I'd just replace it with a UN55 for ~$20. Gotta be a big upgrade from whatever that was.

Whatever it was, it wasn't steel. The way it fractured makes me think that it was probably the same stuff that cheap Chinese spanners are made from.
