In many parts of the country, the weather has been warming up as we enter the spring season. With nicer days ahead, many Americans are excited to get on their bicycles and enjoy a nice ride.
However, a big recall was just announced that could potentially cause a lot of people to second guess that ride around the park. Specialized, the famous bicycle company, is recalling 13,000 bikes after they made a big discovery.
According to reports, there is a faulty fork in its 2018 model Allez road bike. It can cause the bike to wreck and could seriously injurer any rider.
“We’re happy to report that we’ve received approval for our fork recall and replacement program, and we’ve been working hard to source replacement forks to get you back riding as quickly as possible,” wrote Jon Goulet, Specialized’s director of global quality and rider care, in a mid February update on the recall. “Starting today, we will begin delivery of forks to your retailer, who will install the new fork on your bike at no cost to you.”
The company has been doing everything they can to spread the word about the recall and to keep riders safe. They first discovered the error this past December. They have been diligently working to replace the forks. If you believe you own this bicycle, please bring it to your local Specialized dealer and discuss getting it replaced.
