Do you own a BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc bike? You’ll want to know that the Swiss company has just issued a voluntary recall for due to a “technical problem with the fork that could result in a cracked or broken steerer tube, leading to potential crashes and injuries.”
The recall impacts all BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc bikes from Model Years 2018 and 2019, and which first went on sale in June 2017. If you have one of these bikes, BMC strongly requests that these bikes are no longer ridden and are brought to a BMC retailer for a safety check.
If you have one of the bikes listed below, you’ll be wanting to take it back to where you bought it from or any BMC retailer for a safety check. BMC says the retailer will carry out an identification process to determine whether the bike is cleared to ride, or whether the fork needs to be exchanged.
Here is the full list of bikes the recall applies to:
Model Year 2019
Model Year 2018
The recall doesn’t impact 2020 model year bikes or any rim brake bikes, it’s just the disc brake versions.
