AMERSFOORT, The Netherlands – SRAM will conduct a voluntary recall of a limited number of SRAM Force front road brakes which may have faulty titanium mounting bolts. This issue has since been corrected, and does not affect all Force front brake mounting bolts.
SRAM will replace any Force front brake assemblies produced within the time frame of 1 June, 2006 to 15 September 2006. The date codes are on the back of the brake caliper. Also calipers that do not carry a date code (early production may not include a date code) must be considered affected. Current date code range: 35T6XXXXXXX to 39T6XXXXXXX (first two digits indicate the week of production, 2006)  
SRAM is currently in the process of contacting all effected customers. The SRAM announcement also states: “While the expected failure rate is low it was determined that it is in the best interest of our customers and consumers to be pro-active in replacing the product in question. We have put in place personnel and logistics in each continent to execute the recall as fast and smoothly as possible.
 SRAM is actively working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the USA on this issue. A CPSC notice will follow this notification in mid February. Replacement brakes are in warehouses in the USA, Europe, and Asia to facilitate the replacement effort. We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers, dealers, and cyclists and remain committed to providing you excellent quality.”
