Ejer du en Specialized Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge eller Sirrus med Future Shock, bør du læse dette ! Specialized tilbagekalder cykler

Specialized har udsendt til tilbagekaldelse på deres Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge og  Sirrus modeller for årgangene 2017 til 2019. Der skulle angiveligt være problemer med stress korrosion på klampen til fastspænding af styrfittingen som i værste fald kan give brud.

Specialized Future Shock er en speciel styrfitting med indbygget fjeder som giver en vis dæmpning af vibrationer. Læs mere om Future Shock her.

Specialized gør opmærksom på at det ikke er problemer med selv Future Shock kassetten, men derimod klampen som forspænder lejerne på styrfittingen.

Specialized har udviklet en ny klampe som skulle reducerer problemet væsentligt. De har lavet en liste over de cykler som kan have problemet. Har du en af disse skal du strakt indlevere den til din forhandler som vil sørge for at den gamle klampe udskiftes med den nye.

Her er den fulde meddelse fra Specialized

Dear Specialized Rider,

Your safety is our top priority. Whenever something happens that may compromise your safety, we take immediate action.Based upon reports from the field, the steerer tube collar on select Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge, and Sirrus bicycles may be susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. When that happens, it may result in a sudden loss of steering control while riding. Click here to view a list of affected models by Model Year.

We are voluntary recalling the steerer tube collars on these bicycles and are replacing them with a new, improved collar which, together with an adjustment to the torque setting, will significantly improve the collar’s resistance to stress corrosion cracking. We have reported the matter to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and are working closely with them on a press release announcing the recall shortly.

Please stop riding your bicycle immediately and visit your local Authorized Specialized Retailer to have a new steerer tube collar installed, at no cost to you.

We wish to apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience. Thank you for riding Specialized.

Jon Goulet, Director, Global Quality and Rider Care
