9286-5052
9286-5055

are affected by this recall.  It seems that the front fork steerer tube on these 2008 Specialized Globe Elite bicycles can break during use resulting in a possible loss of control of the bicycle.

These Specialized Globe Elites where sold between August 1, 2008 and December 11, 2012 (slow seller?).

What should 2008 Specialized Globe Elite Owners Do?

If you have an affected bicycle, please stop using it immediately and return it to an authorized Specialized Bicycle retailer for a free repair or replacement of the fork.
