Surly Bike Forks Recalled For Fall Hazard – Virginia Defective Product Attorney

May 9, 2013 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

A number of Surly Pugsley Bicycle Forks have been recalled due to the potential for the bicycle fork to bend, creating a fall hazard for the rider, reports PRNewswire.

About 975 of the bicycle forks, manufactured in Taiwan and sold in various bicycle stores across the United States and online from May 2012 to February 2013 for the cost of around $100 each, have been recalled because of a defect that may cause the fork to bend above the disk brake mount, creating the risk of a fall for the bicycle user.

The recall involves all tubular chromoly steel Surly Pugsley 135mm and 100mm bicycle forks, sold either individually or with a Pugsely bicycle (around $1,750). The forks have the name “Surly” printed on both legs, and “Pugsley” on the forks’ packaging. For complete model details, click here.

There has been one report of a rider falling because of a bending fork above the disk break, but the rider was not injured in the incident.

If you own one of these defective bicycle forks, you are encouraged to stop using the bicycle immediately and to contact a Surly dealer for a free replacement, inspection, or full refund. You can call Surly toll free at (877) 946-9333 or visit their website at www.surlybikes.com.
