The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of SRAM hydraulic bicycle brakes. http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2014/SRAM-Recalls-Hydraulic-Bicycle-Brakes/
The brakes are unsafe and might fail suddenly causing serious bicycle accidents. No fix is offered on the website, “replace” is the only option listed. Ten manufacturers that incorporated the hydraulic braking systems are listed in the recall. Both rim brakes and disc brakes are included in the recall.
