Global 'inspection and replacement' process confirmed for affected 11-speed Dura-Ace and Ultegra cranks
this is insane… and the article states probablyy soon to be expanded to the EU. I knew of the reports of failing cranks, but recalling 11 years worth? Wow! Also: replacement path will be straight to the corresponding current 12s model.
Absolute mess for stages/4iiii power meter companies and users though.
… I have a 6800 on my zwift bike, so that sits in buckets of sweat and extreme temperature swings constantly. I’ve actually worried about it, if I’m honest.
Edit: currently 2.8 million crank sets potentially affected. The shimano site now states that you go to „your local shimano service partner“ - as if I have something like that! Oof. Anyway… let’s see what October 1st will bring, that’s when things are supposed to go down…
