Handlebar recall January 5, 2011The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in conjunction with Salsa Cycles of Quality Bicycle Products have recalled over 6500 handlebar stems. These stems were typically sold as aftermarket parts for bicycles through various bicycle retailers and online outlets. The two models involved are the CroMoto S.U.L. 25.4 and 26.0 threadless handlebar stems and all CroMoto S.U.L. 26.0 quill handlebar stems sold as individual aftermarket units after April 1, 2010. They are black in color and have Salsa printed on the exterior. The Salsa stems can fail and lead to significant personal injury. If you, a family member or someone you know has been injured by the manufacturer’s negligence, please contact us immediately so we may advise you and assist you in being compensated for your pain and suffering. If your bicycle has one of these handlebar stems, stop using it immediately and contact a Salsa retailer for a refund. Do not return the defective product if you have been injured by it. It may be needed as proof in your personal injury case. Here’s a link to the CPSC recall info.
