Glad that you are OK. I love my Bacchetta, and have great respect for the company and people.  My posts concerning the riser are merely to alert riders to a situation that bears further examination, for safety's sake. And thank you for what is a simple explanation of product liability law. The product must not pose an unreasonable risk of failure when put to its foreseeable use. The burden is on the manufacturer, not the user. And, it is reasonably foreseeable that people will put rotational force on handlebars.
 
Again, I have the utmost regard for Bacchetta and company. I enjoyed over 5,000 miles on my CA 2.0 last year, and hope to do more this year.  But, we don't want to stick our heads in the sand.

My Ti Aero is almost 15 years old with the original one piece curved riser. With at least 40,000 miles on it, maybe I should replace it.
