WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
During ongoing product testing, the GT team identified a potential issue with the handlebars on a limited number of bicycles. In certain cases, the handlebars may develop small fatigue cracks over time, which if not identified, may continue to grow larger and eventually lead to a fracture of the handlebars. If this happens, a rider could lose control of the bicycle and fall.
No incidents or injuries have been reported, but the safety of GT riders and optimal performance of GT products is our number one priority, so GT is launching a voluntary recall and free replacement program.
WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?
If your bicycle meets all steps 1-3 above, you should stop using it and bring it to an authorized GT dealer to confirm if your bicycle is affected by this recall. If your bicycle is affected, an authorized GT dealer will replace the handlebar and stem free of charge.
