    You are quite late, it was posted weeks ago. But since you didn't know, I assume others didn't either so it's a good thing to remind it.

    I think they might re-release it periodically for safety's sake. It was posted on Cannondale's web site about a month ago and I posted about it on my site on May 23rd, it was posted on Cannondale's website on May 22nd...

    The warnings a few weeks ago wasn't a recall. It was like a service bulletin instructing dealers to check the forks if anyone happen to bring in certain bikes for maintenance.

    Considering the number of injuries including some serious ones I can see why it became a RECALL.

    It was initially a service bulletin, published I think Apr 25th, and then became an official recall on the 22nd of May, Dan's right. I had one of the forks that came apart mid-ride and so was watching it very closely. I posted the recall notice on the 23rd on the MORE forum: http://www.more-mtb.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7532

    Regardless of the chronology of events here, the most important thing is to get the word out to those who own these to get them checked out asap!

    With injuries and potential lawsuits waiting I wonder which assembly worker at Cannondale got given a big boot out the door?
    The shop I work at is close to a Boeing plant and we were discussing the recall with a Boeing employee. He was telling us they have issues like that happen quite commonly! There was a case of a missile (fortunately not a plane!) that kept going out of control and they tracked it down to one employee who used the wrong kind of solder on a circuit board because she thought it looked better!

    April25th!!! Well anybody who got hurt bad after that date certainly has a case against Cannondale.
