Had one of these installed recently and both top and bottom guides continue to snap off

Anyone else had issues?

seconded

what torque are you doing the bolts up at?

I've got a 9 month old Mini G2Sl that has been used on a downhill bike, still on all of the original parts

and I've got a Lopes guide (more minimal again) done well over 2000km's, including smashing my chainring into stuff riding more jungle style trails and again, its still on the original upper and lower

dry lube = no no with polycarb dude


Same from E*13 (who also use polycarbonate parts in their guides)
