Specialized Recalls Popular Road Bike Models After Injury Reports

Injuries to at least two cyclists have prompted Specialized to recall three models of road bicycles, including the some popular Tarmac models.  Facial injuries are reported to have occurred to riders when the steerer tube in the fork broke, according to a press release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.  The recall affects recent editions of the Tarmac SL4, Crux and Secteur models.  The steerer tube connects a bicycle's fork to the frame head tube.  Bicyclists should immediately stop using the bikes and contact an authorized dealer for an inspection and free repair.

  1. The above bicycles have really injured the persons on it. There has been a lot of incidents on to this. These cycles have been really called off and will really affect the runners. Hope all these will be again changed and it will be too good. The injuries related may be considered to be the personal injury and may site for compensation if it has been serious.
