The bicycles have a black matte finish. The affected bicycles have a serial number within the following range: L8E0300001 – L8E1001050. Serial numbers are located on the bottom of the bicycle between the pedals.

That is an interesting stem design, where the faceplate faces upwards. The crack appears to be at the point of least cross-sectional area. Did all 120 units the CPSC is reporting have the same type of damage? I'm curious to see.
