Rocky Announces U.S. Recall
For Immediate Release:
Rocky Mountain Toll Free Line: 1-800-663-2512
May 7, 2002
CPSC File #: 02-158.
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Rocky Mountain Bicycles are voluntarily recalling the following mountain bicycles.
This voluntary recall involves 2001 SLAYER and 2001 EDGE 16.5", 18.0", and 19.0" model bicycles. The chainstay on the bicycle can fail at the dropout junction under extreme riding. These models were sold in the United States from January 2001 through February 2002 at authorized Rocky Mountain Bicycles dealers.
It is recommended that owners of these bicycles immediately return them to the store where purchased for a repair. If the bike currently has the letter "S" stamped into the chainstay yoke, then there is no need for replacement as the bike is already equipped with the redesigned part. If there is no "S" on the yoke, then the chainstay will be replaced. Please note that the replacement will be identified with the stamped "S".
SLAYER chainstay kit P/N: 180173RMB. EDGE chainstay kit P/N: 180172RMB.
