In February, SRAM issued a recall for first generation Zipp 88 aluminum hubs. Now, that recall has been expanded to include additional versions produced from 2010 through 2015. The recall includes hubs and front wheels with the Zipp 88v6, 88v7 or 88v8 aluminum front hub, as well as their quick release skewers. According to SRAM, the flange that retains the spokes and/or the skewer’s lever could fail to remain closed, and either could cause a crash.
