FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset recall

BB30 crankset:

BB30 Crank set...more mass=more stiffness=more efficient power transfer.
Probably the biggest innovation in road bike technology for 2010, with little room to improve upon  modern road bicycles, Gossamer had created a new reason to buy a new bike.  I personally was looking at the Fuji ACR series, and the Scattante CFR at a local bike shop.  The sales guy pitched me the importance of the BB30, and I was sold.  Just didn't have the money for a new bike.  Other tech points were things like the asymetrical chain stays, carbon seat stays and forks.  All about efficient power delivery.  As it turns out, now many of Full Speed Ahead's Gossamer BB30 cranksets are under recall.  The reason being that if by chance you or your mechanic had over torqued the fixing bolt for the crankset upon installation, there is a possibility of cracking the bolt, or even the non-drive crank.
