Recall: Cervélo bikes with 3T Aduro Aero bars

Bicycle Retailer wrote:In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, 3T has announced the recall of 2012 and 2013 Cervélo P5 bicycles fitted with 3T Aduro aerobars.

The forward extension mounts can detach from the base bar while riding, causing the rider to lose control and posing a risk of injury. 3T has received 28 reports of incidents, including one report of a broken collarbone and four reports of abrasions.

The recalled Aduro bars were manufactured between January and July 2012 and are identified by their serial number. The recalled bars are on about 1,300 Cervélos in the U.S. and about 225 in Canada.

The serial number is on a label inside the base bar under the stem cap on the rear wall. The serial number is the seven-digit number following “FM78-Basebar-.” The manufacture date-code is the first four digits of the serial number in the MMYY format. Date codes for the defective handlebars are in the range 1201-1207.

Cervélo and 3T jointly issued a stop-sale order to retailers for the affected bars on Aug. 9, 2013. A green “é” sticker on the lower surface of the Aduro basebar distinguishes P5 bicycles that have already been inspected and passed at retailers

Do I detect a slight hint of jealousy? Put some cinelli drop bars on it and you are set (or an apache helicopter).

No jealousy, just tongue in cheek! I have too many to be bagging them!
