As first reported by our colleagues at Cycling News (opens in new tab), Scott Sports has recently issued a voluntary recall notice on some of its Speedster bikes, covering both gravel bikes and road bikes.

Scott is conducting the recall due to an in-house finding that the steerer tube/fork bridge can break, creating a possible fall hazard. Currently, there have been no reports of accidents or injuries as a result of the potential breakage and no reports of failure in the bikes from the range. Scott has said that there are around 2,000 Speedster bikes from the 2022 collection, with five specific models being affected and covers bikes sold in Europe, Asia and South America.

The five models hit by the stop-ride notice are the Speedster Gravel 50, Speedster Gravel 40 EQ and Contessa Speedster Gravel 35 bikes, along with the Speedster 40 and Speedster 50 road bikes.

Owners of the affected models have been advised to check underneath their fork for a green dot, bikes without the green dot are subject to the recall, while those with the dot are still safe to ride. Those affected are being told to take their bike to an authorized Scott dealer and a new replacement fork will be fitted free of charge.

Alternatively, owners can contact Scott at recall@scott-sports.com for more information.
