Giant Bicycles, in cooperation with the CPSC, is recalling about 1,000 TCR Advanced SL and SL bicycles and frames from the 2009 model year because the density of the steerer tubes can cause the forks to crack, posing a fall hazard to consumers. The company has received one report of a fork breaking, with no injuries.
This recall involves 2009 TCR Advanced SL Team, SL 0, SL 1, SL 2, and SL (ISP) model bicycles and frames in silver, charcoal, blue and red. The words "Giant" and "TCR Advanced SL" are printed on the frame. Steerer tubes with "B," "N" or "P" at the end of the serial number are NOT included in this recall. Other "TCR" model bicycles are also NOT included in the recall.
The recalled bicycles and frames were sold nationwide from August 2008 through December 2008 for between $3,300 and $7,500. They were all manufactured in Taiwan. Consumers should stop riding these bicycles immediately and contact us for a free inspection and replacement fork.
For additional information, contact Giant Bicycle at 866-458-2555 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST Monday through Friday, or visit Giant's website.
