According to a recall announcement published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Specialized Bicycle Components has initiated a recall of its Sirrus, Sirrus X, and Sirrus Sport Bicycles with alloy cranks. The recall involves a defect that caused the recalled bikes’ crank arms to disengage, resulting in the bicycle’s operator losing control of the bicycle, leading to falls and injuries. The recall was announced on March 16, 2022, and affects around 19,000 (36,000 bikes were recalled back on September 23, 2020).

The initial recall on September 23, 2020, involved Sirrus, Sirrus X, and Sirrus Sport bicycles with 2019 and 2020 model years. The word “Sirrus” or “Sirrus X” is printed on the bicycle’s top tube, and its model name is written on the bicycles’ seatstay.
