Felt has announced a voluntary recall of its 2009 triathlon models - the B12, B16 and S32.

The reason for the recall revolves around a 'fork prone to breaking'. Seven examples have been reported to the manufacturer to date and only minor injuries have resulted from the fault.

Felt spokesman Michael Müllmann states that: "All bicycles are brought to the market only if they meet or exceed the relevant national standards, such as CPSC in the USA, AS for Australia, JS for Japan, and EN for Europe.

"All the above mentioned bicycles B12, B16 and S32 have passed and exceeded the applicable EN tests, as well as all other national standards. Unfortunately, labor tests as performed for any of the above mentioned standards, still do not mirror every day riding or even performance riding in every aspect."

Felt says that around 50 per cent of the affected forks have been exchanged to date.
