Understatement of the year

Well, the year is still young, but this is surely a contender…

Quoted from an SRAM product recall on Rock Shox mountain bike forks:

The steel steerer on the forks can crack, causing the fork to detach from the bicycle frame. This can cause the rider to lose control and crash.

LOL. Ya think? If your fork detaches while riding, and you don’t crash, I’ll buy you a drink. (But, more likely, you’ll be wanting to see a dentist.)
