Specialized Australia Pty Ltd—MY2002 – MY2015 Bicycles with Front-Wheel Quick-Releases and Disc Brakes

Identifying features


What are the defects?

A front quick-release cam lever that has a clearance of less than 6 millimetres and is improperly adjusted or left open while riding may come in contact with the front disc brake rotor.

What are the hazards?

If the quick release lever contacts the front disc brake rotor, this may cause the front wheel to come to a sudden stop or separate from the bicycle, posing a risk of injury to the rider.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should perform the #2 Pencil Test (a video on how to perform the #2 Pencil Test is on www.quickreleaserecall.com) to determine if their bicycle is affected. If the bicycle is affected, consumers should visit their nearest Authorised Specialized Retailer for a free replacement of the front quick-release.
