Colnago America of Chicago is recalling all Colnago CF10 and Colnago V1-r racing bicycles and bicycle frame kits that fit 28-inch wheels because the front brakes can detach from the fork while riding and can pose a crash hazard. To date, there have been no incidents or injuries reported.
There are about 400 Colnago bikes affected by the recall in the United States and 34 in Canada. These bikes were sold by authorized Colnago dealers from August 2014 to April 2015 for between $4,800 and $12,000.
The models recalled have the following descriptions:
- “Colnago for Ferrari” written on the downtube and the Ferrari logo on the seat tube of the CF10.
- “Colnago” is on the downtube and the Ferrari logo is on the crossbar of the V1-r. Model numbers CF10 or V1-r are on both sides of the front fork.
- Model CF10 frames come in the colors black with white letters and red trim, and black with white letters and yellow trim.
- Model V1-r frames come in the colors black with white letters and red trim, gray with black letters and black trim, gray with white letters and white trim, and white with silver letters and silver trim.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled bicycles and bicycle frame kits and contact Colnago America for a free inspection of their bike. If the hole in the front fork for the brake mounting bolt is not at least 12 mm in depth, the front fork will be replaced free of charge.
