Giant Avail Advance 2

Product Safety Recalls Australia in conjunction with the Giant Bicycle Co Pty Ltd has announced the recall of three model year 2012 Giant Defy models, the Defy Advanced 2, the Defy Advanced 3 and the Avail Advanced 2 due to an issue with the forks.The recall notice states that there is a potential for the fork blades to crack under severe riding conditions which of course can result in some rather serious injuries. If you own one of these models you should immediately discontinue riding the bicycle and get in contact with your Giant dealer to get the issue sorted.

Interesting and I would suggest pretty poor form, but Giant Australia do not have this announcement on their website that I could find or on their Facebook page. In my view they need to get their act together and treat the safety of their customers with a lot more seriousness.
