Sprint ST (1050) mechanical failure

I'm writing to inform all Sprint ST owners of information i've received in connection with 'mechanical failure' found after an accident i had 6 weeks ago.

For the record my bike is (was) 15 months old, had done 5K miles and had been lovingly looked after. However, whilst doing approx 60mph my rear wheel simply totally locked up putting me into a skid i was unable to control.

After spending 2 weeks in hospital after sustaining multiple broken bones, i have now received the engineers report from my insurers. It states the siezure of the rear wheel was due to the total failure of either the gearbox or 'rear axle'.

Not sure what the best thing is for all you Sprint ST owners to do, and hopefully mine was a one-off. Simply thought it best to let you know what has happened to mine  - which is now a Cat B write-off!
