BMC says it has identified a problem with the fork found on twenty models, which could result in a damaged steerer tube, and therefore potentially lead to crashes and injuries.

In light of this, BMC is requesting that owners of affected models stop riding them immediately and take their bike to a BMC retailer for a ‘safety check’.

The safety check will reportedly involve the retailer carrying out an identification process to determine whether the bike is cleared to ride, or if the fork needs to be exchanged for a new one.

Bikes produced in the model year 2020, Teammachine SLR02 bikes and SLR01 rim brake models are excluded from the recall.
