Wilier Triestina recalls Izoard XP bikes

Steerer tube can break on $2,600 bike

Wilier Triestina is recalling about 200 Izoard XP bikes in coordination with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

If you have one of these bikes, purchased since January 2012, stop using it immediately.

 It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The steerer tube can break on the Izoard XP.

This recall involves Wilier Triestina Izoard XP bikes or framesets that were sold with carbon/alloy forks with serial numbers between LH0001 and LH4000. The serial number is located on the steerer tube of the fork, around six inches from the crown. Bicycles purchased before January 2012 are not included in this recall.

The bikes were sold between January 2012 through October 2012 for about $2,600.

If you have this bike, have an authorized Wilier bicycle dealer check for the serial number on the fork and, if it is included in the recall, the dealer will install a new Izoard replacement fork at no charge. You can also contact Wilier USA toll-free at (888) 849-7779 or visit www.wilier-usa.com.
