Deda Newton stem warning.(2 posts)

I'm not sure if this has been discussed but at a race recently I personally saw two broken front caps on Deda Newton stems, apparently they are aware of this and have changed them because I inspected a newer one and the cap looked different. On the old ones there are square machined edges ( this is bad, it creates stress risers which cause failure) the new ones have radiused edges.

Deda recalled these stems a year or two ago. I don't know if the recall is still being honored, but if you have a Newton stem that you aren't sure about you should bring it to a shop to have it checked out. Newer Newtons are fine. It was only the early ones that had problems.
