This recall involves Specialized Fuse Comp and Fatboy SE bicycles with Stout cranks. The drive-side crank arm can disengage and cause the rider to lose control, posing fall and injury hazards.
In extreme, and very rare cases, this production variation could lead to the drive-side crank arm disengaging from the crank assembly, causing a risk of injury. Only cranks manufactured in 2017 are potentially affected.
The bikes come in Gloss Hyper/Black Clean and Satin Gloss Black/Rocket Red for Fuse Comp and Gloss Warm Charcoal/Black/Gallardo Orange and Satin Oak Green/Black/Rocket Red for Fatboy SE. Approximately 1800 units are affected.
Only cranks with 'STOUT' written on either crank arm and equipped with a direct-mount chainring manufactured in 2017 are affected. Cranks are manufactured in 2017 if the serial code imprinted on the inside of either crankarm starts with '17'.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles with Stout cranks and contact an Authorized Specialized Retailer for instructions on how to receive a free replacement crank arm.
There have been no reported Incidents or Injuries.
