Epic bike recall

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced two bicycle recalls this morning.

2010 Specialized 26” Epic and 26” Era Bicycles were recalled because the “Brain” shock absorber mount on the seatstay can fail and the shock absorber can make contact with the wheel spokes, posing a fall hazard to the rider. Specialized notified their dealers of this months ago, so this may be old news to you. Details here.

Nirve chopper style bikes have been recalled because the handlebar stem can crack.
