You’re an experience rider. You paid good money for your Specialized bike. (Probably lots and lots of money.) So don’t get tossed when the bike fails you! You need to know about recalls on Specialized handlebars and cable-stops before you get hurt. Or, if you’ve already been hurt because of one of these product defects, you need to know that an attorney can tell you about your rights and claims.

Specialized Bikes did one of their recalls on a number of 2009 bikes because of the handlebars breaking. Cross Trail Comp, Myka HT Comp, Myka HT Elite, Rockhopper, Rockhopper Comp and Rockhopper Comp 29 are all the mountain bikes which use the defected handlebars. Underneath the right hand grip of the handlebar is the model number ALR-13 NTFOV, which you can use to make sure your handlebars are the defected ones. Do not take this recall lightly…one rider has already had the handlebars break, causing a violent crash and head trauma. The second recall relates to the cable stop. The cable stop on some bikes can loosen. The recall is for the following bikes: 2004 Roubaix Comp 18, 2004 Roubaix Comp 27, 2004 Roubaix Pro 18, and 2004 Roubaix Pro frame set models. Only bicycles with a single rivet fastening the cable stop to the frame are subject to recall. The cable stop is attached through bonding materials and a single rivet mounted at the front of the bicycle. The cables pass through eyelets in the cable stop on the down tube. Bicycles with a double rivet fastening the cable stop to the frame are not subject to recall. The model names of the recalled bicycles can be found on the top tube of the bicycles. One rider had the cable stop loosen, lost control and ended up with fractures and surgery. If you have one of these bikes, stop riding it! Call your dealer and get the parts replaced – Specialized will pick up the tab. If you are reading this too late and have already been hurt, you should talk to an attorney who specializes in product defect liability. They can thoroughly inform you of your rights, and the claims you may be able to make.
