So what is the problem with the spindle?

Actually just google imaged it and the spindle has slits.

Looking at the numbers for recall, 70 bikes, 170 cranks brings home how small the BMX market is in the scheme of things...

Someone got sacked.

Did someone really get fired over this?  The job posting makes it look more like they need a CAD guy, not an engineer.  This seems like it would be more of a failure on the engineers side vs. the CAD guys side.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out exactly what problem those slits would cause.... and I'm guessing "torsion." The force of cranks on a spindle is to twist the spindle in opposite directions. . . . .

So, I wonder why they're still on their website?

"BRUNO HOFFMANN RIDES OUR NEW AEON CRANK. THE AEON CRANK IS A BRAND NEW PRODUCT FOR 2015. THE IDEA BEHIND THE AEON, WAS TO TAKE THE PROVEN 2 & PIECE SYSTEM AND DESIGN A WAY TO MAKE THE CRANK AS SIMPLE AND AS EASY AS POSSIBLE TO INSTALL AND REMOVE FROM YOUR BIKE.

AFTER A YEAR OF TESTING THE END RESULT IS A SUPER STRONG AND RELIABLE CRANK WHICH CAN BE ASSEMBLED WITHIN A MATTER OF MINUTES WITH TWO STANDARD ALLEN KEYS. THIS IS DOWN TO OUR PATENTED EXPANDING SPINDLE SYSTEM (ESS) WHICH CAN ONLY BE FOUND ON THE AEON CRANK."
