The USA’s Consumer Products Safety Commission and Cannondale have announced a recall of some 23,000 Cannondale Mountain Bikes with OPI stem.
Although no incidents or injuries have been reported, it is now believed that the OPI stem / steering tube assemblies can fail, posing a risk from a fall.
This recall involves all model year 2011 through 2015 Flash, FSi , F-4, F-5, F-29, Lexi, RZ, Scalpel and Trigger Cannondale mountain bicycles, with OPI stem/steering tube assemblies “OPI” is printed diagonally across the stem/steering tube in black letters.
Owners and riders should immediately stop using the recalled bicycle and take it to the nearest authorized Cannondale dealer for a free repair. Cannondale dealers will fit a locking reinforcement wedge assembly inside the OPI stem/steering tube and replace the clamp bolts.
