Specialized Bicycle Components Recalll

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC), in conjunction with Specialized Bicycle Components announced recently a product recall of its bike brake levers due to associated crash hazards. Purchasers should stop using these recalled products immediately.

Specialized Bicycle Components Inc., Morgan Hill, California has noted that the product defect associated with these brake levers involves the adjuster cap and brake cable, which can slide out of position, thereby rendering the brakes non-functioning. This can cause a rider to lose control of the bicycle and crash.

Product Description:

The recalled products are Tektro TL-83 brake levers. TL-83 levers are designed exclusively for use with aerodynamic handlebars (aerobars) sold as original equipment on 2010 and 2011 S-Works Shiv bicycle frame modules and 2012 S-Works Shiv TT bicycle frame modules. They are also sold as aftermarket service parts for these modules. The levers are modified versions of the TL-720 brake lever, and are sold at authorized, Specialized Bicycle Components retailers from approximately April 2010 to February 2012. These brake levers sold for about $80 as service parts. These components are manufactured in China.

Remember, If you have suffered personal injury as a result of your use or interaction with a defective product (a product with a defective design, a product with manufacturing defects or defective warnings), you need experienced legal counsel with significant experience in product liability matters.
