      Not sure if this affects anyone but Easton is recalling EA30 MTB stems. The stems were included on certain bike builds from 2007 to 2009 and were also sold as aftermarket upgrades. No word on if anyone was seriously injured but it sounds like a pretty serious problem. Here are the details:

      Easton Sports is recalling about 6,400 of its bicycles with EA30 stems because the bicycle stem can crack and cause the rider to lose control, posing a risk of serious injury if the rider falls.

      This recall involves all Raleigh 2007, XXIX 700c MTN, RX1.0, Diamondback 2007, Mission, and Sortie bicycles with EA30 stems. The EA30 stems are black with white-and-gray graphics and feature a four-bolt stem face cap.’EA30′ is printed on the stem. EA30 stems sold as aftermarket items are included in this recall.

      The recalled items were sold at independent bicycle dealers nationwide from August 2007 through August 2009 for between $500 and $1,200. Aftermarket stems were sold from August 2007 through September 2009 for about $30.

      Consumers should immediately stop riding the bicycles and contact any authorized Easton Sports for a free replacement stem.
