|Zepp XL Stem RECALL||LS|
Aug 13, 2002 8:23 PM
|Someone reported earlier that Zepp XL stems on factory C-dales are being recalled. I have confirmed w/TTT that this recall is applicable to all Zepp XL stems. I was told that these stems should not be used as the bolts holding the clamp can shear off. My LBS confirmed that a local rider had this happen to him while climbing, causing serious injuries. Word is that replacement bolts will fix the problem and will be available in a couple weeks, after TTT announces the recall (not sure why C-dale is advertising this while TTT keeps quite for 2 wks, or why all the shops are still selling the Zepp XL as is).|

|I recently bought a 3T Zepp stem--is there a difference between just a Zepp and XL? Mine is the cnc T6, 135 gram, AZPX code (whatever that is) but looks identical to the one in the cannondale pic.
|LBS said it only applies to the XL...||biknben|

|The stem with the smaller diamter clamp is fine. I sure hope so. I've got one.
Apparently, the screws on the XL aren't long enough and the threads are failing. Swaping the bolts for longer ones will solve the problem.
