Throwing away a working set of Altus cranks is probably not the best idea if the rest of the components are same level. Just buy a better bike when it's necessary.

Just been out to the shed to check mine on the back of that. Heh.
Fortunately mine are MC11

And also have the notches as per this chainset, mine are Alivio though and a lot more worn.

Strange that Sheldon Brown says MC11 are riveted, but mine have bolts.

Probably best to contact Madison about the recalled cranks. It's their job.
