Specialized Source Eleven (2013 model shown)

Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert Hub Failure

Product Safety Recalls Australia are advising the set screws in the front Supernova hub of the recalled Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert (model year 2012) bicycles can loosen and stop the front wheel from turning.

Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert Bicycles Affected by the Recall

The recall applies to Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert  (model year 2012) bicycles fitted with Supernova hubs marked with one of the following batch numbers:

1207, 1208, 1226, 1227, 1228, 1241, 1254, 1263, 1284, 1344

Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert Bikes Recalled? Action to take

If you are an owner of a Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert  (model year 2012) you should stop riding the bicycle immediately and return your bike to an authorised Specialized retailer. Affected owners will receive a replacement front wheel and a new Supernova front hub.

For further information, well there is no further information. Specialized website is at http://www.specialized.com/au/en-au/home but there is no mention of the recall. I guess the best option is your local Specialized dealer.

If you have one of the Specialized Source 11 and Source Expert (model year 2012) bicycles affected by the recall, do please let us know your experience with the recall.

    Thanks for the info.

    My SP PV-8 hub is doing just fine so far, touch wood. It’s been used for every ride since I built it into a wheel last October. For a regular winter club race, I’ll ride to the race, race and ride home with this wheel and my headlight (BUMM Lumotec IQ Cyo Premium) on my bike.

    I don’t subscribe much to the weight weenie mentality, racing A grade Vets on a custom steel frame and home built wheels. Sure I don’t want to ride an anchor, but a kg or two isn’t going to change the outcome of a 60km club race for me. Race weight for my bike with pedals and this dynamo hub is about 8.7kg.

      Good to know about your hub; I have a PD-8 waiting to be built into a wheel.

      How is the hub, I have 2 source 11’s and both the hubs are history after little use.

Please share your thoughts ...
