The ACCC has announced a recall of 8 Norco bikes including 2007 Team DH, 2008 Team DH, Aline Park, Atomik, Shore 1, Shore 2, Shore 3, 2009 Atomik (without gussets) which were sold between 2006 and 2009.
The warning has been announced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for Norco bicycles sold Australia-wide.
The head tube area of the frame may develop cracks and could cause the head tube to separate from the remainder of the frame, causing a rider to fall from the bicycle and suffer injuries.
While Norco was imported during this time period by Sports Australasia, Pacific Brands is the new importer and enquiries that can’t be answered by dealers can be directed towards them.
