Specialized Recalls Faulty Aerobars

by editors on March 26, 2015


Have a pair of carbon or alloy Specialized Aerobars? If so, it’s time to stop using them until Specialized sends some replacement mounting hardware, according to the Consumer Protection Safety Commission.

This recall involves carbon and alloy Aerobars sold individually and with model years 2012 through 2015 Specialized Shiv bicycles and model year 2013 Specialized Transition Apex bicycles. The carbon Aerobar was sold in black with a white Specialized logo on the top side of the handlebar, and the alloy model was sold in black with no markings. . . The firm has received four reports of the Aerobars bolt loosening. No injuries have been reported.
