Two Companies Recall Over 100,000 Bicycles

By Kelly Balamuth on September 30, 2011

Mountain Bikers in Northern California should be aware of two large recalls announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), totaling over 100,000 mountain bicycles on September 22. One was for the bike staple Specialized Bicycle Components (from Morgan Hill, California) and the other for Bridgeway International, Inc. (of Naples, Florida).

In the case of Specialized, the company recalled about 14,200 bicycles due to a faulty carbon fork part made by Advance Group in Taiwan. The hazard occurs when a brake piece located in that carbon fork becomes disconnected. This allows the brake parts to make contact with the spokes on the wheels while they are spinning, and can result in a fall accident. So far, the company has heard of two reports detailing these sorts of accidents, according to a release by the CPSC, but no associated injuries have been accounted for at this time.
