Fall Risk Prompts Recall Of Nearly 1,000 Surly Pugsley Bike Forks
Just under 1,000 Bicycle Forks under the Surly Pugsley brand have been recalled by the Bloomington, Minnesota-based Surly Bikes. Each of the affected bike forks would have been available online and across the country between May of last year and this past February. By themselves, they cost $100, but if attached to a bike, said bike could cost around $1,750. In the area atop the disc brake mount, bending could occur and lead a cyclist to be thrust from the bike. One incident without injury has been reported. Owners are being asked not to use any bikes containing these forks. Instead, a dealer that can offer a free inspection and repairs should be sought.
