COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., USA (9 October) — RockShox, Inc. of Colorado Springs, CO, has issued a Stop Sell Notice to its customers for the 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front suspension bicycle forks that were built with compression rods that can fracture in use resulting in a loss of control and possible serious injury to the user. RockShox Inc. has received reports of 23 failures of the compression rods and 2 reports of minor injuries. RockShox has notified the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding this issue and is working with the Commission staff to develop an effective corrective action plan as soon as possible. RockShox will be distributing recall notices with details of the corrective action plan and remedy to all customers and consumers as soon as the Commission staff has approved the plan. RockShox front suspension bicycle forks subject to this notice are the 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro models. All RockShox 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front suspension bicycle forks have serial numbers in two locations — one engraved on the back side of the crown and a second one on a bar-coded sticker attached to the lower legs. These serial numbers will begin with 01 (example: 011F013448) designating the product as a 2001 model. Any RockShox front suspension bicycle fork with a serial number that does not begin with 01 is not affected by this recall.
The RockShox 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front
suspension bicycle forks were sold as OEM equipment on various makes and
models of bicycles and as aftermarket products primarily through independent
bicycle dealers. These front suspension forks were first available in June of 2000. This notice affects no RockShox product from previous model years or other
2001 RockShox model year products. (JO)
