Models: 2008 Tyax Comp (red), Tyax Elite (black, blue-purple or grey), Tyax Super (silver), Otero Comp (blue), Otero Elite (green), Otero Super (brown). These same model names existed in some earlier years and the method of distinguishing the 2008 models is twofold: Colours are different from earlier years on any given model and the cranks on the affected bicycles are prominently branded FSA and unaffected bicycles have different cranks. Affected bikes were sold after 1 November 2007.
