Formula recall our favorite brakes (of late)...

Edit: Instructions for a fix are now available on Formula's website.

From Bicycle Retailer & Industry News:
The set screw which secures the pin which attaches the brake lever to the master cylinder may come loose. If these set screws come loose, the brake levers may separate from the brake, rendering the brakes inoperable,” said Greg Thrash of Formula Brake USA...

This recall involves Oro disk brakes typically installed on mountain bikes. The brake is operated by a hand lever, which is mounted to the handlebar. Included in the recall are the Oro K18, Oro K24, Oro Puro and Oro Bianco models with serial numbers less than 295237. The serial number can be located on the brake's body above the "Made in Italy" label.

Well, at least now we have a reason to go back to testing those '08 XT discs...
