    Planet Bike Super Flash recall announcment, pending

    That's right, your favourite tail lamp/blinkie, the super flash will be recalled in short time.


    Batches made between between Apr.1/04 and Dec.31/09 are affected. The Stealth Flash is not affected.

    There have been numerous reports of Super Flashes spontaneously falling off the bike or catching fire under certain conditions. This problem has been identified as a failure of the bike to capture the excess heat from the device because a poor mating between the surface of the lamp and the frame of the bike.

    A recall announcement is pending, but here at BF, we have the latest scoop and have given you a heads up warning. In the mean time, if you own one, you are advised to use clear packing tape or zip ties to hold them to your bike. Rubber bands will not do.


    PS. look at the date.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I always suspected the PBSF was partially responsible for many of the reports of exploding Carbon Fiber frames.

    Not an April fool's joke. This is serious stuff. I was following a friend when his PBSF caught fire. He stopped, dropped and rolled in some dry grass in a park. The fire on him was put out, but it caught the dry grass on fire. There's an entire city park burnt down now because of his PBSF.

    No joke.

    I taped by PBFS to a fire extinguisher and then taped that to my bike after reading this. I then set it on fire to test out my rig. It worked out fine for me, but the guy following me got a bit heated up about the whole thing.

    It is against Foo policy to use those words without a pic.
