Scott is recalling Speedster 30 and 40 bikes and Contessa Speedster 25 and 35 women's bikes because the steerer tube can break. Scott USA has received one report of a fork breaking, but no injuries have been reported, the company says. Anyone with one of these 2014 model year bikes should stop riding it immediately and contact Scott through their local dealer.
