According to Ritchey, an unauthorized "deviation" in manufacturing procedures at its Asian factory has produced substandard test results. That deviation has apparently since been corrected but a small number of subpar posts have made it into the marketplace.
All single-bolt alloy WCS posts, 'Stubby' heads included with certain Scott Addict models, and all two-bolt seatposts are not affected.
All affected consumers, regardless of locale, are asked to first contact Ritchey's warranty department for a return authorization number at either +1-650-368-4018, extension 1855 or email@example.com.
Here's Ritchey's complete explanation of the recall.
