Suspension Seat Posts
- Cane Creek Cycling Components (Cane Creek) has recalled
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 Cane Creek Cycling
