The Bloomington, Minnesota-based Salsa Cycles has announced the recall of 1,700 Salsa Vaya and La Cruz bike forks made of chromoly steel that were sold either by themselves or as a component of Salsa Vaya frames and bikes. Available across the country between February 2011 and June of last year, the forks are in danger of bending, potentially causing the person riding the bike to sustain a fall. Eight bending incidents have been reported at this time, but thankfully, none of those led to an injury. Owners should refrain from riding bikes containing the forks; instead, they can get in touch with a dealer to obtain a free inspection and repairs.
