    Ritchey Design Recalls Defective WCS Rear Wheels

    JULY 28, 2005 -- SAN CARLOS, CA (BRAIN)*Ritchey Design is recalling about 2,000 WCS road and mountain rear wheels, sold both to the aftermarket and to original equipment customers.

    The recall is limited to Ritchey WCS rear wheels produced since January 2003. Comp and Pro level wheels are not included in this recall.

    The problem is that the rear freehub body, manufactured under license from American Classic, may slip or altogether cease engagement with the freehub pawls, causing the rider to lose all forward drive without warning. The design of the Ritchey WCS rear hub has since been corrected and manufactured correctly to eliminate this potentially hazardous condition.

    I think those come with kickstands, so all would be good even if the axle snaps in half

    Yeah, I'm thinking about it, probably next year so I can get some cash for a new bike for next season. I want to get some mileage out of it before then.

    ps. careful with those rear axles.
