This recall includes all 2013 model year Cannondale triathlon and time trial Slice RS bikes including the Black Edition, Ultegra and Ultegra Di2 bicycles and framesets. The Black Edition bikes come in black and the word Cannondale is in green on the top tube. The Ultegra and Ultegra Di2 are white with red trim and the word Cannondale is in black on the down tube of the bicycle. The unusual brakes on the Slice RS models are mounted behind the front fork and under the chainstay. The brake plate can loosen and cause a potential fall hazard. Cannondale has received one report of a loose brake plate, however no injuries have been reported.
The effected models were sold at Cannondale retailers nationwide between October 2012 and June 2013 for between $5,500 and $11,000 for the bike and $4,500 for the frameset.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and return the bike to a Cannondale retailer for a free repair, a Cannondale Terramo helmet and Classic Jersey. Cannondale is contacting its customers directly.
