Elite Cycle Imports and Product Safety Recalls Australia have announced the recall of Answer Dagger Pro 20″ bicycle forks commonly fitted to BMX bicycles as the stem may detach from the bicycle, leading to loss of control and resulting in fall injuries.
The recall affects Answer Dagger Pro 20″ bicycle forks sold nationally across Australia between December 1, 2010 and January 13, 2012.
Answer Dagger Pro 20″ Bicycle Forks Defect
The reported defect with the Answer Dagger Pro 20″ bicycle fork is that when several spacers are inserted under the handlebar stem and the stem is positioned too high, the stem may break due to the added leverage. This may result in the stem may detaching from the bicycle, leading to loss of control and resulting in fall injuries.
What Should the Owners of Answer Dagger Pro 20″ Bicycle Forks Do?
All owners of affected Answer Dagger Pro 20″ Bicycle Forks should have been notified by mail and/or phone of the defect and recall notice. Owners of the forks and/or bicycles fitted with the forks should cease using the bicycle and return it to the place of purchase for rectification.
