What’s the Problem?
June 14, 2017 – The recall involves 2017 model year Karakoram Sport, Karakoram Comp, Aggressor Sport, Aggressor Comp and Aggressor Expert, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“In certain cases, the handlebars may develop small fatigue cracks over time, which if not identified, may continue to grow larger and eventually lead to a fracture of the handlebars,” a GT representative said.
The bikes were sold in several colors including, black, blue, gunmetal grey and neon yellow. However, only models with a solid black “GT” logo on the downtube and a stem marked “Ø31.8 9-10N.m” are included in the recall.
The bikes were sold from June 2016 to August 2017 for between $440 and $800.
Consumers are being asked to immediately stop using the recalled mountain bikes and contact an authorized GT dealer or Cycling Sports Group to schedule a free repair of the handlebar and stem.
To date, no injuries have been associated with the recall.
