BMC has recalled its Teammachine SLR01 Disc model bicycles and frame sets because the fork can break.
Some 274 bike from the 2018-2019 model year are involved.
Bikes from Model Year 2020 and beyond are not affected.
The bicycle fork steerer tube may crack and potentially snap during regular use.
If the bicycle fork breaks, the rider may lose control of the bicycle, which may increase the risk of an accident or injury to the rider.
Consumers should stop riding the bicycles immediately and contact their BMC retailer to arrange an inspection of the fork to identify if it is safe to continue riding or if a replacement fork needs to be fitted.

The product was sold in specialist bicycle stores nationally between 1 June 2017 - 14 November 2019.
