MORGAN HILL, CALIFORNIA – A news report posted on bicycleretailer.com states that the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Specialized Bicycle Components have recalled Tarmac SL7 bikes and bike frames due to a defect that could result in fall injuries. Bike dealers who sell Specialized bicycles have already been notified about the recall.
The recall concerned a defect in which the fork steerer tube can break or crack following a hard frontal impact. According to Specialized, the company received two incident reports concerning the steerer tube breaking upon impact. The company states that there have not been any injuries reported at this time.
Owners of the Tarmac SL7 bikes and frames are urged to stop using the recalled bicycles and frames and to contact Specialized for a free bicycle frame inspection and repair.
The Specialized Tarmac SL7 recall affects close to 7,000 units. The bikes are identified by the word “Tarmac” which is written on the backside of the bike’s seat tube. The words “Specialized” or “S-WORKS” are printed on the downtube. The affected models were sold by authorized Specialized retailers from July 2020 until August 2021 for a price of $3,300 and $15,000.
Specialized retailers will update the compression ring to a newer and improved style two-piece compression ring and replace the bicycles’ original expander plug with a new extended expander plug.
