2009 has been a bad year for bike manufacturers so far... How many recalls does this make now?

Looks like the problem is limited to certain stem/steerer combinations, which can remedied by replacements.

Seems all the recalls have to do with the steerer tube...

Carbon does not seem to be the best material for them unless re-enforced with the compression plug or an insert...

Good to remember...
