Specialized Bicycle Components has expanded a recall of their 2012 bikes with Advanced Group carbon forks to include an additional 460 units, bringing the total bikes affected in this Specialized recall to about 14,200.
The brake component housed within the Specialized bicycle’s carbon fork can disengage, allowing the brake assembly to contact the wheel spokes while rotating. This poses a crash hazard to riders.
The recall involves the 2012 Tricross Sport and 2012 Tricross Comp model bicycles. The bikes are various colors and have the brand name “Specialized” on the lower front frame tube. The model name “Tricross Sport” or “Tricross Comp” is on the top tube.
They were sold at uthorized Specialized Bicycle retailers across the country from June 2011 through November 2011 for between $1,250 to $2,000. If you own one of these you are advised to stop riding it immediately and return the bicycle to an authorized Specialized retailer for a free repair or replacement carbon fork.
