Easton is recalling all EA30 stems produced and sold from 2007 through 2009.Ã‚Â While the stems passed industry standard tests for safety, Easton has identified a problem not uncovered by those tests which it claims may cause the stem to crack and fail.
The stems were sold aftermarket and as OEM on bikes, and here’s how to tell if your stem is affected:Ã‚Â The production date will identify if the EA 30 stem is included in the recall. You will find a production code on the side of the clamp next to the lower clamping screw (see pictures). The production code is comprised of the calendar month (denoted by a letter A – L) and the year (denoted by a single digit). Please see the chart below for a complete listing of the markings required to identify the affected stem.
