Gore Ride On Brake Cables and Housings Recalled

"Smooth, easy braking" is not so much with the combination of Gore Ride On brake cables and housings and Campagnolo braking systems.  W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of the Gore Ride On Low Friction System brake cables and Gore Ride On Professional System brake cables for road bikes.  When used with Campagnolo brake levels only the heads of the cables may detach from the levers, leaving the rider without a functioning brake.  Gore is aware of at least one incident of this occurring.  If you own this braking system contact Gore for a replacement kit.
