expanded recall of carbon fiber forks manufactured by Specialized. Today's announcement added about 460 units to over 14,000 recalled in September, 2011. The recall pertains to "Advanced Group" carbon forks. "The brake component housed within the bicycle's carbon fork can disengage from the fork and allow the brake assembly to contact the wheel spoke while rotating," said the Commission. Certainly, having a piece of the front brake fall into a moving front wheel could cause serious injury, although none have yet been reported.
