Major Recall of SR Suntour Forks
WARNGAU, Germany – SR Suntour in North America and Europe issued a voluntary recall for more than 100,000 forks sold between November 2014 and May 2015.
The fixing bolt that attaches the upper part of the forks included in the recall to the lower part may break causing the lowers to separate from the stanchions causing a fall hazard. Consumers are urged to stop using bicycles with the recalled SR Suntour bicycle forks and return the bicycle to the shop for a free inspection and repair.
