Full Speed Ahead has voluntarily recalled 9,300 of its FSA BB30 Gossamer crank sets installed on multiple brands of road bikes.
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 the bicycle causing the rider to crash and suffer injuries.
Full Speed Ahead has received 11 reports of incidents, including two cases where injuries have been reported.
Bikes using the component include certain models of Bianchi, Cannondale, Felt, Fuji, Quintana Roo, Litespeed, Raleigh and Scattante.
Gossamer BB30 non-drive crank arms that are included in the recall have serial numbers beginning with 10B, 10C, and 10D. Serial numbers are located on the backside of the crank arm by pedal threads.
MegaExo model Gossamer cranksets and Gossamer BB30 cranksets with three drive gears (referred to as “triple” cranksets) are not involved in this recall.
