Sunline V One 31.8mm carbon bars Recall.

Postby nicklouse » Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:13 am

Sunline V One 31.8mm carbon bars Recall.

Hazard: The handlebar can crack or break, posing a possible fall hazard to the consumer. We have identified a potentially serious safety issue with the 31.8mm version of the carbon V1 handlebar.

Action: CONSUMERS SHOULD STOP USING THESE HANDLEBARS AT ONCE, remove them from the bike and return them to the store that they were bought from who will arrange for a refund.

Incidents: MMA Sports have received a small number of reports of handlebars cracking – particularly around the stem clamping area. None of these incidents have so far resulted in any injury to the rider.

Manufactured in: Taiwan

Sold by: Specialty bicycle retailers nationwide and via web sites with a SRP of £99.99.

Description: This recall involves Sunline V1 Carbon handlebars in the 31.8mm version ONLY, sold as individual aftermarket units. The handlebars are finished in a clearcoat gloss lacquer, showing the carbon weave construction of the bar. They have white Sunline printed logos, with ‘ VONE – 318 CARBON’ printed below. They also have white printed cut marks at each end of the bar, and a distinctive ‘grip tape’ finish in the stem clamping area.

We have determined that there is a potential for the handlebar to fail due to a possible fault in the manufacturing process. This is not a design fault, but a problem with the manufacturing and it is impossible to judge which handlebars are affected until they break.

Remedy: Consumers should stop riding these any bicycle fitted with these handlebars immediately and contact an authorised Sunline dealer for a refund.

Customers must stop using the handlebar and return it even if there are no visible signs of damage.

If you’ve bought this product for someone else or know someone who has one, please let them know about this recall as soon as possible.

Consumer Contact: Should you have any queries or concerns regarding this recall please call 01792 467 467 where our staff are happy to help. Lines are open from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Or contact via email: info@mmasports.com

MMA Sports would also like to stress the only model affected is the Sunline V1 Carbon 31.8mm carbon. No other models of Sunline handlebars are affected.

MMA Sports would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by this recall. We will endeavor to carry out this recall quickly and with as little inconvenience as possible.

Magura Durin Race Recall

http://www.service.magura.com/en/start.html

Dear MAGURA customer,

During our ongoing and continuous Product Evaluation and Testing Process we have discovered that the initial production batch of our Durin Race 80/100 (MD 80R, MD 100R) Suspension Fork could potentially be faulty. This fault if present will affect the performance of the lower fork leg and in the minority of cases could potentially represent a risk to the user.

For this reason we are issuing a recall of the concerned suspension forks Durin Race 80/100 (MD 80R, MD 100R) in both disc only and canti/disc (for V-brakes) version. As a result of the potential risk to the user MAGURA recommends that affected units are no longer used as they may not be fit for the purpose intended!

Durin Marathon and Durin SL are not affected by this recall action.

I want to join the recall. CLICK HERE!

The affected suspension forks must be sent either directly to MAGURA or through an authorized MAGURA distributor.

We will make every effort to ensure that this Recall action is concluded as smoothly as possible whilst causing a minimum of inconvenience to our valued customers. We would like to take this opportunity in advance to thank you very much for your support and understanding in relation to this matter.

During the course of our product testing we have established that the affected units in the severest of circumstances could potentially fail causing the breakage of the lower leg of the Durin Race 80/100 and that this could eventually result in a crash and possible injury to the rider.

The recall issue initially manifests itself with a crack on the front fork arch between the horizontal and vertical portion of that arch. The fork remains rideable at this stage, because the 2nd rear arch acts as a stabilizer for the lower leg, but the fork will feel indirect with a reduction in steering precision and the front tire will rub on the inside of the fork legs. If the rider continues with the broken front arch, the breakage of the 2nd rear arch is inevitable and this could then result in a crash.

This Recall only applies to a limited number of Durin Race 80/100 from the initial production batch, which can be identified by serial number or potentially through an optical assessment of the front fork arch radius.

Your MAGURA Passion People Team
