CPSC, Cane Creek Announce Recall of Bicycle Suspension Seat Posts
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Cane Creek Cycling Components (Cane Creek), of
Fletcher, N.C., is voluntarily recalling about 7,700 bicycle suspension
seat posts. The seat post's cradle, which attaches to the bicycle seat,
can break, posing the risk of falls and serious injury to riders.
Cane Creek has received 18 reports of cradles breaking; though, no
injuries have been reported.
The recalled THUDBUSTER Suspension Seat Posts are black and silver
and have a range of serial numbers between 10894 and 18710. The serial
number can be found inside the seat post's tube toward the bottom of the
post. The words, "Cane Creek" and "Thudbuster" are also printed on the
seat post. The seat posts are made in the U.S.
Independent bicycle dealers nationwide sold these seat posts
between November 2000 and June 2002 for about $140.
Consumers should stop using these seat posts immediately and
return them to the company for a free repair. Consumers should contact
