Full Speed Ahead (FSA) has received reports that the bolt shoulder (Figure 1)on the non-drive Gossamer BB30 series crankarms can crack and break if the installer exceeds the recommended torque specification while tightening the crankbolt. If the bolt shoulder is cracked or damaged in any way, the crank arm can potentially loosen, allowing the rider to lose control and fall.

Gossamer BB30 non-drive crank arms that are subject to recall have serial numbers beginning with 10B, 10C, and 10D. Serial numbers are located on the backside of the crankarm by pedal threads (Figure 2).

Models affected are: Gossamer Pro BB30 CK-OS6021CC/ Gossamer Pro Compact BB30 CK-OSC6021CC/ Gossamer BB30 CK-OS6020SS/ Gossamer Compact BB30 CK-OSC6020SS.

MegaExo crankarms are not affected. Gossamer BB30 Triple cranksets are not affected.
