Do you do most of your riding on a trainer (more sweat on the clamp causing corrosion) versus outdoor riding?
Mine does not look likely to fail any time soon, but I only have about 600 miles and 3 months on the bike so far.
Just out of curiousity how often do you ride outdoors vs time on the trainer? Just looking at that pic, it looks like there is some corrosion going on. Just wondering if that is due to maybe being on the trainer and your sweat dripping down onto your bars.
Twice in 3 months is sorta scary though. I would go to your retailer you bought the bike from and see if they can help you in getting a response from Felt.
As for stopping the sweat..... I use an old tech t shirt for that. Just pull the neck over the extensions and then put the sleeves over the bullhorns. If you cut a little 'X' in the shirt right where your computer mount goes you can slip it through before afixing the computer to it. Then just pull the shirt towards the calpac and voila, you've got coverage for all the front end.

You should get them replaced at no cost through your retailer. If that takes too long you can also order the parts from the felt website, i know, you pay for it and that shouldn't be the case but is sometimes to most speedy way. Heck, we as a shop sometimes just order through that channel instead of waiting for the distributor getting them from felt. We just want to have so we can help our customers the fastest way, at any cost.
My girlfriend's DA has the same clamp and it failed after about 3 years of riding when she hit a pot hole.
I noticed on my IA i have a little washer that goes inside the clamp and her's didnt so when you torqued the bolt down to clamp the extension the top part of the clamp would sit at an angle. Hopefully that makes sense.
I think if you can find that washer it should help prevent this problem for people in the future.
