FSA - recalling FSA BB30 Gossamer double cranks

Full Speed Ahead (FSA) is recalling some FSA BB30 Gossamer double cranks that were installed as original equipment on several bicycle models sold this year.

FSA is working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to conduct the voluntary recall.

If the fixing bolt is over-tightened on the non-drive crank arm, the bolt shoulder can crack or break. If this occurs, the non-drive arm can fall off.

Owners of bicycles with the affected cranks are being advised to stop riding them immediately and take the bike to a retailer where a replacement crank will be installed.

About 9,300 cranks are affected by the recall. The cranks were installed on the following bike models, sold between February and October this year:
