    As one of the riders who had one of these stems fail (went down hard as the handlebars, obviously, completely same off the bike), this is long overdue. My shoulders are still sore from the crash that occurred the day after Thanksgiving.

    Mase- Under what conditions were you using the bike in general and when the stem failed? Pavement commuting or off-road mountain biking?

  3. Mase says:

    Normal pavement riding. Hit a small pothole, but nothing I’d consider even bunny-hopping over, and the stem just broke. Could see clearly that the weld point at the top of the neck of the stem (where it broke) that it was corroded … badly.

    Was on a Salsa Casserroll (Single). Barely 3 months old.

    Bummer. Thought I would be relatively unaffected by this recall due to the type of riding I do on this particular bike. Mine is on a 3 month old Salsa La Cruz that rarely sees dirt. Thanks for the info.
