    "Full Speed Ahead Crank Sets Used By Numerous Bicycle Manufacturers Recalled Due To Crash Hazard

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

    Name of Product: Full Speed Ahead BB30 Gossamer crank sets installed on numerous makers of bicycles

    Units: About 9,300

    Importer: Full Speed Ahead, of Woodinville, Wash.

    Manufacturer: TH Industries, of Taiwan

    Hazard: If the fixing bolt is over-tightened on the non-drive crank arm, the bolt shoulder can crack or break. If this occurs, the non-drive arm can fall off the bicycle causing the rider to crash and suffer injuries.

    Incidents/Injuries: Full Speed Ahead has received 11 reports of incidents, including two cases where injuries have been reported.

    Description: A crank set is the component of the bicycle that the chain and pedals attach to for pedaling. The recalled models are either painted black with “Gossamer” printed in white on the arm or white with “Gossamer” printed in black on the arm.
