Update.

Nerfs are holding up well (structure wise) black paint has rubbed off some so now parts of the nerfs are blue. The front bumper cracked the two top mounts. Then I got stuck and forgot about the cracks and lifted up on the bumper and ripped off the both top mounts. So now I have no bumper, I will have to get another one and rigged it up somehow.

My Alba nerf bars seem to be holding up just fine so far. Had them for like a year or so now I think. Saved my feet countless times so far.

yea my left bars cracked too, I sent them in to be repaired but had to pay for the box, which for these odd-shaped things was almost as much as shipping.
They guys at Alba acted like this was some strange occurrence and that they had never seen their bars cracked before.... yea right.

BTW mine cracked in the exact same place as yours. The mounting tabs are very poorly designed, but thats what you get with nerf bars that are less than 100 bucks

I'll have to inspect mine for cracks. I haven't really looked too closely at them lately. But as far as I know, they seem to be doing good so far.

Dayum! Yep, mine are just starting to crack on the peg area mount just like the pictures posted. About an 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch long. I have two 700's both with Alba nerfs and both sets are starting to crack in the same place.

I see that the cracks begin at the end of the pegs. It's my guess that this could be caused by body weight or any kind of weight on the nerfs. They are aluminum after all and I'm sure they aren't that strong or engineered to hold all that much weight.

I have a friend thats a fabricator. I'm gonna take my quads over to him and see what he can do to fix the cracking issue.

Alba just welded a plate (about 1/8 thickness) on top of the existing mounting tab that extended about half way over the round tube of the nerfs to add reinforcement.
I know that description isnt too good so i can try to get some pictures if necessary.
Unfortunately Alba only fixed one since the others havent cracked YET, so i guess ill get to try out the new TIG and reinforce the other side.

Hey guys thanks for the posts on the cracking welds. I just got done reading all the reviews and I hope Alba comes up with a solution or better welds. If I didn't have fellow riders like you guys to test and try things out I wouldn't know what the best products are.

Do they still make the bumpers? Im having a hard time searching for it. I have had the nerfs for a few years and they seem to be holding up fine.

I got mine welded back up by a friend. I didn't have the time to visit my fabricator friend. The next day after getting them welded up is when I broke my leg riding.
