FYI - TRP recalling some disc brake calipers

Dec 11, 2013

“We have identified a specific condition that could result in failure or one or both of the brakes when installed on a bicycle,” TRP said in a statement Tuesday.

The Spyre caliper uses a dual piston design in which ball bearings move within opposing ramps. We have discovered that in a specific scenario, the balls can be forced from the ramps if the actuator arm is fully activated to its stop with excessively worn or no pads installed.

The effect is that the one or more of the balls can jump from its position within its respective ramp, resulting in a reduction or loss of braking force.
