BMC issues voluntary recall of Teammachine disc bikes

Safety problems with the fork have forced BMC into this recall of bikes

BMC has issued a voluntary recall of its Teammachine SLR01 disc bikes due to fork issues. The brand issued the recall on Thursday afternoon in order to undergo safety checks stating it would affect 'bikes from the Model Years 2018 and 2019' adding that the first bikes of this kind went on sale in June 2017.

BMC stated it had 'identified a technical problem with the fork that could result in a cracked or broken steerer tube, leading to potential crashes and injuries.'

While the recall is only voluntary, it continued by stating: 'To safeguard the user and uphold the brand’s own strict quality standards, BMC Switzerland requests that these bikes are no longer ridden and are brought to a BMC retailer for a safety check.'

BMC asks its customers to take the bike to a BMC retailer in which they will identify the bike and determine whether it needs a new fork or is cleared to ride.

It is also worth noting that BMC has not said that this affects bikes produced in the model year 2020 or the rim brake Teammachine SLR02 and SLR01 bike.

Below is a complete list of all bikes issued in the recall:
