BMC Bikes Recalls Teammachine SLR01 Over Fall Hazard
Dec. 24, 2019 – The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on Thursday issued a nationwide recall for about 840 Teammachine SLR01 Disc bicycles and framesets over concerns that the fork steerer tube can crack or break during use, posing a fall hazard.
CPSC said it is aware of at least 4 reports of the fork steerer tube breaking while in use, with 1 rider experiencing a shoulder injury that required hospitalization and surgery, and the other riders reporting minor scratches and bruising.
The recall affects all model year 2018 and 2019 Teammachine SLR01 Disc bicycles and framesets, which were sold at BMC bicycle dealers and bicycle stores nationwide from July 2017 through October 2019 for between $4,500 and $12,500, CPSC said.
Affected models were sold in colors including red, green, grey, graphite, blue and aqua green, and have the letters “BMC” printed on the downtube. The recalled bikes also feature serial numbers starting with 8R17 and 8R18, followed by one letter and a 4-digit code, which is printed on the underside of the bottom bracket of the bicycle.
If you purchased one of the recalled BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc bicycles or framesets, you should stop using it immediately and contact your local BMC dealer for information about how to obtain a free replacement.
