I said earlier that i think the issue was that they didn't use locktite on the screws on the bikes that are recalled. But looking at a new page yesterday it finally mentioned it IS a thread locker based recall and it said "wrong type of thread locker". So it appears they may have used blue or whatever and normally used red, which is what the new screws i just got were coated with. So i guess they saw that picture and decided to nip this one in the bud before they are knee deep in lawsuits. What they SHOULD be doing is recalling every bike and fitting bolt heads. That way they could also fit a piece that has locking tabs you bend up to the edge of the bolt like they do in front sprockets.
