Suntour Bicycle Fork Recall Issued Following Injury Reports From Bolts Breaking

Over 100,000 bicycles are being recalled due to potential problems with bolts on the front fork, which may break and cause the wheel to disconnect from the bike, potentially causing serious injury for the rider.

A SR Suntour bicycle forks recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 24, after at least 15 consumer complaints were received involving problems with the bolts breaking during use. To date, the manufacturer is aware of at least two injury reports from falling riders who suffered minor abrasions, cuts, and bruises.

The recall includes Cannondale, Diamondback, Giant, GT, INA International, Schwinn, Scott and Trek brand bicycles equipped with the SR Suntour bicycle fork models M3010, M3020, M3030, NEX and XCT. The recalled fork models have serial numbers in the top row beginning with the letter “K” and ending with a number between 141101 and 150127. The model and serial numbers can be located on the top and bottom of the fork’s crown. The forks display the brand name “SR Suntour” on stickers placed on both sides of the fork legs.

    Was there ever a lawsuit filed? I have just learned that the the bike that broke my leg in two places in April 2015, when the forks separated, was recalled for this reason. The bike was purchased in April 2015 and injury happened the same day. The bike forks were then recalled in June 2015
