Campus Cruisers Bike Recall

Campus Cruisers and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have teamed up to issue a voluntary recall for around 100 Campus Cruisers Eastside fixed gear bikes. Sadly, the forks on the Eastside are at liberty to crack or even break, in turn the rider can lose control, causing a health hazard.

So far, a total of four reports on cracks have been taken place, which are located beneath the front fork crown. Good news is, no injuries have been reported. The Campus Cruiser is a single speed/fixed gear that released to selected bicycle retailers from March 2010 to May 2010 with a MSRP of $450. If you are a owner, please cease riding the bike, contact a local Campus Cruiser dealer for a free repair. If you are not located by a dealer, then calling Campus Cruiser customer service is your best…

The T0001 RotaFixer Tool was designed to take the place of your lockring wrench and chainwhip. It is simple to use and lets you remove and install lockrings with just a rotafixing technique and your bicycle chain.

The T0001 RotaFixer Tool took a year to develop from its humble beginnings on table napkins and kitchen checks. Its prototype was tested by Boston bike messengers until its final design came to be made. From stainless steel parts, it was polished and then etched with laser. Designers and inventors Joshua Kampa and Aaron Panone took the finished product to Mike Dacey of Repeat Press for its packaging design.

The new tool can fit large Profile type sizes to small Sugino type lockring sizes. You can also work the 17 tooth cog with a 1/8” width chainwhip.
