Crash Hazard: SR Suntour Bicycle Fork Recall

Anyone who owns a bicycle with an SR Suntour fork: Take a moment to check the model on your bike.

SR Shimano Fork Recall

Suntour issued a recall that affects nearly 100,000 bicycles in the United States and Canada on June 24. The forks are being recalled because a bolt that attaches the upper part of the fork to the lower part can break or separate and cause the wheel to come off.

So far 15 incidents have been reported, including two that resulted in minor injuries.

They are found on bikes made by Cannondale, Diamondback, Giant, GT, INA International, Schwinn, Scott, and Trek. Affected models of SR Suntour forks are: M3010, M3020, M3030, NEX, and XTC.

The recalled forks have a serial number in the top row beginning with “K” and ending in a number between 141101 and 150127.

The forks were manufactured between between Nov. 1, 2014, and Jan. 27, 2015.

Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles with affected SR Suntour forks and return them to the place of purchase for inspection.
