Recalls Australia and Pacific Brands Sport and Leisure Pty Ltd (Norco distributor)Â have announced the recall of the following models of Norco bikes: 2007 Team DH, 2008 Team DH, Aline Park, Atomik, Shore 1, Shore 2, Shore 3, 2009 Atomik (without gussets). The affected bikes where distributed in Australia from September 2006 until May 2009.
The fault is related to the head tube area of the frame, which may develop cracks and could cause the head tube to separate from the remainder of the frame, causing a rider to fall from the bicycle and suffer injuries.
If you have one of these bikes, you should immediately ensure that the bicycle is not ridden again and contact the current distributor of Norco bicycles in Australia, Pacific Brands Sport and Leisure Pty Ltd, or a local Norco dealer to arrange for an inspection of the bicycle and replacement of the frame at no cost to the consumer.
