Tektro USA/TRP has announced a recall on their Spyre and Spyre SLC dual-piston mechanical disc brake calipers.
Identification: Please zoom the photos below for large images. The Spyre calipers have a black anodized caliper body and a silver actuator arm with “Spyre” on it. The Spyre SLC calipers have a polished aluminum caliper body and a black composite actuator arm with “Spyre SLC” on it. Recalled calipers have a fastening screw with a hollow six-pointed star-shaped head with no markings on it and a 3 millimeter pad adjust screw on the outward side.
Recall Issue/Hazard: The brake cable actuator arm can over-rotate, dislocating parts, causing the brake calipers to fail. Lack of brakes results in loss of control and a crash hazard, posing a risk of injury to the rider and others
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop riding bikes equipped with the recalled brake calipers and return the calipers to the original place of purchase or Tektro USA/TRP for a free replacement with an improved version.
