Published November 11, 2020

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Quality Bicycle Products issued a recall of Salsa Cycles Cutthroat bikes because the fork legs can crack or break. The recall affects about 600 bikes in the U.S., and another 100 sold in Canada.

It involves 2020 Cutthroat bikes, framesets and forks with the fork serial number containing the letter "G." The fork serial number is visible when removed from the frame.

Salsa has received seven reports of cracked forks. No injuries have been reported.

The specific models include Salsa Cutthroat GRX 810 Di2, GRX 810 1x, GRX 600, Apex 1, framesets, and Carbon Deluxe V2 aftermarket forks. The model name is printed on the frame, and the bikes are sold in a variety of colors and sizes.

Consumers are being told to immediately stop riding the recalled bikes, contact Salsa Cycles, and visit an authorized Salsa retailer for inspection and free installation of a replacement fork.

The bikes were manufactured in China and sold at Salsa authorized retailers nationwide from September 2019 through September 2020 for between $2,700 and $5,800.
