PRO Hi-Comp stem recall

Two of the biggest manufacturers of cycling components have issued voluntary recall notices for defective stems.

Although the two recalls are complete unrelated, Easton and PRO have both uncovered safety concerns with certain models of stem, triggering a recall of affected equipment. Details are below.

Easton EA30 stem recall

Easton EA30 four-bolt stem

Easton has voluntarily recalled its four-bolt EA30 stem made between January 2007 to August 2009. Some users reported that the stem can crack, leading to failure of the component. Both after-market and original equipment EA30 stems made between the dates specified are affected, but it does not affect any other Easton stem.

Those stems subjected to the recall notice can be identified by the date code marked on the stem. This is marked next to the lower clamp screw hole. The following production codes are affected: A7, B7, C7, D7, E7, F7, G7, H7, I7, J7, K7, L7, A8, B8, C8, D8, E8, F8, G8, H8, I8, J8, K8, L8, A9, B9, C9, D9, E9, F9, G9 and H9.

PRO Hi-Comp road stem

PRO Hi-Comp road stems manufactured between November 2003 and June 2006 have been recalled due to a manufacturing defect. During use, the stem may crack ultimately leading to breakage.

The models affected are clearly marked with the legend PRO Hi-Comp, and the recall includes all lengths and diameters.
