Quickies: Sigma Rox, Soleus Gets Strava Upload for New Year, Prior SRAM Red WiFli Recall Gets Official
The Sigma Rox 10.0 GPS cycling computer launched at Sea Otter this year and brought the brand into modern times with GPS, ANT+ and mapping/routing capabilities. And we’ve wanted one ever since. Problem is, shipments are sold out before they even get off the ship. Word is the next batch makes its way to the US just after the New Year, so get your order in now if you want it.
Coming along at the same time will be a much needed update to the Data Center that allows for direct upload to Strava. It’ll generate a .FIT file that can be sent to everyone’s favorite (or least favorite) social ride app. Now, all your rides will actually happen. Training Peaks will still require you to save the file and upload it separately.
If you’re a triathlete that uses a GPS running watch as your overall movement tracker, the Soleus GPS devices and/or computer software also get an update to allow direct uploads to Strava. Their Draft GPS cycling computer is already compatible with Strava.
In other news, the recall notice sent earlier this year for a small batch of their Red WiFli 10-speed rear derailleurs finally gets official from the CPSC. About 1,700 total units are affected, some of which were reportedly contained before being sent out. Check past the break for the full PR and linkage…
PRESS RELEASE: SRAM worked with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and other global authorities on a voluntary product recall of SRAM RED 10-speed medium cage rear derailleurs. SRAM has determined that there is a potential for the derailleur parallelogram to jam and no longer shift.
This presents a safety issue. As a result SRAM is actively retrieving and replacing all affected SRAM RED 10-speed medium rear derailleurs. SRAM has already begun a pro-active quarantine of product. SRAM advises consumers to stop using these products immediately. Failure of the SRAM RED 10-speed medium cage rear derailleurs while in use may result in loss of bicycle control and possible injury.
In the public recall announcement, we ask consumers owning one of these products to stop riding immediately and confirm the derailleur has a serial number between 31T2000000 – 11T39999999, and return any affected derailleurs to their dealer to obtain a free replacement. Please refer to images to confirm serial number location.
Any dealer with a SRAM RED 10-speed medium rear derailleur installed on a bicycle as part of a groupset within the indicated serial number range can exchange these derailleurs with their local SRAM DSD, TechCenter or SRAM Distributor. Return of the existing derailleur would be required, replacements would be shipped with a SRAM 1091R.
As always, we appreciate your business, and apologize for the disruption.
The CPSC has required that we share the following link to the official recall notification:
