Model Identification

The risk:

The steerer tube can crack during regular use and potentially snap. A broken steerer could result in the rider losing control of their bike, crashing, and potentially suffering injuries.

The reason:

We identified a technical problem with a part of the fork, which now means that retailers must carry out safety checks. Even though the number of such cases remains very low, BMC has decided to recall all TEAMMACHINE SLR01 DISC bikes from the Model Years 2018 and 2019 to undergo safety checks.

The next step:

Owners of TEAMMACHINE SLR01 DISC models from Model Years 2018 and 2019 are requested NOT to use the bike from now on, and to bring the bike to a BMC retailer who will carry out the safety check.
