Marin has issued a product recall on 2016 Pine Mountain 1 forks and 2017 Pine Mountain base model bikes.
Marin has concluded that all 2016 Pine Mountain 1 and 2017 Pine Mountain bicycles will be voluntarily recalled pursuant to the rules of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission – CPSC, Health Canada (HC) as well as the Chartered Trading Standards Institute in the UK due to the potential for the fork to bend or break at the fork crown area – although no injuries have occurred so far.
The brand is asking that anyone selling or riding the forks ceased usage immediately. You are advised to contact your local Marin representative, who will organise replacement forks. These will be sent to the dealership at which the forks were purchased.
The replacement forks will feature a striped graphic on the main body of the units to differentiate between old and new models.
