Specialized has voluntarily issued a safety recall on 2004 model-year Roubaix Comp, Pro Bicycles and Pro Framesets (photos). About 3,000 sold nationwide from September 2003 through August 2004 for between $1,600 and $4,000. The cable stop on these bicycles can loosen, which can cause the rider to lose control and fall from the bike. This can pose an injury hazard to riders in a fall. Unfortunately, Specialized has received 2 reports of injuries.
