Interesting. So maybe it is a design deficiency of some kind.
This time, the stalk broke in such a way that it can't be taped. Last time, I taped it, but the tape kept slipping, so not real successful.
That little problem is annoying.
Oh, one other thing...slight edit to a post above regarding the SWing at freeway speeds. Checked it again a few weeks ago on a ride and was reminded that 75mph gives 5500 rpm, not 6200 as reported above.
