The brake caliper sets could break and detach from the bicycle’s fork or frame. This could cause the rider to lose control and crash, said CPSC. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall involves the SRAM Force Road Brake Calipers sets sold as aftermarket components. The brake caliper sets have “SRAM Force” and some have a date or production code embossed on the unit.

Dates between 1st June 2006 and 25th December 2006. If no date is embossed, sold between July 2006 through March 2007. Codes beginning with 52T6 and codes with “7” as the fourth digit

The SRAM brake caliper sets may have also been installed on the following makes and models of bicycles: Specialized (S-Works Tarmac SL, S-Works Roubaix); Trek (Project One Madone models); Fuji (Fuji SL1); Scott USA (Addict R3); Bianchi (Bianchi 928 SL); Kuota (Kuota KOM, Kuota KREDO, Kuota KEBEL); Orbea (Orca, Aqua, Loboular, Opal, Arin, Aqua Dama, Dama Race and Diva); Kestrel (Evoke SL/Force, RT700/Force), Titus (Vuelo, Solera) and Sampson (Diablo).

"Consumers should stop using bicycles equipped with these brake caliper sets immediately and contact their bicycle retailer for a free replacement," said the recall notice.
