I run a set of Race Face SL carbon cranks. i damaged one - stupidly - cause I fell stupidly.

Is is BS, or am I just being ridiculous, that companies (or at least Race Face) do not sell crank arms individually?

Can you buy one pedal should you crash and destroy it ?
or even one Renthal lock on grip cause it got ripped to pieces ?

Ideally it would be nice to buy one part of a two piece set, but then
surely wouldn't manufactures have this surplus of one odd parts to store,
I don't think it should be expected of manufactures to supply one parts
as in this case ( being carbon also adds to it ) but a manufacture could capitalize on supplying
odd parts if it proved financially viable to them.

Ebay or similar at some point may give you the part to replace,
in the meantime avoid carbon and go with something more
durable and wallet friendly, or buy the same carbon crank, and in
the event on another misshap hope its on the other crank arm
from the one you already damaged.

Some companies do offer left hand crank arms separately. Of course that doesnt help if that isnt the one you damaged. Have you already tried to contact them about it?

Single cranks might not be carried by most online retailers, but I'd be surprised they wouldn't be available via RaceFace directly, or whoever imports the brand in the USA.
