As you know I’m a big fan of the Surly LHT, I just spotted this in Australia. Might be worth checking your bicycles anyway. I build ours up myself and do not use cantilever brakes, so I’m sure that we are ok.

Dirt Works Australia Pty Ltd are recalling the Surly Crosscheck & Surly Long Haul Trucker :

Identifying features : All bikes sold between February 2006 and August 2010.
What are the hazards? : Failure of the brake cable could result in the cable impacting the tyre. This may potentially lead to loss of control and possible injury.
What are the defects? : Some bicycles may not be fitted with a brake cable catch hook to the cantilever brakes.

The fix is dead set simple (if your bike doesn’t have the catch hooks). Dealers are being provided with the catch hooks and they can be fitted in a few minutes.
