What’s the problem?
June 14, 2017 – According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), handlebars on recalled GT mountain bikes can crack, posing a fall hazard to the consumer. Affected bikes are from model year 2017, and include the following models:
- Karakoram Sport
- Karakoram Comp
- Aggressor Sport
- Aggressor Comp
- Aggressor Expert
The bikes were sold in multiple colors, but only models with 1) a solid black GT logo on the downtube and 2) a stem marked “Ø31.8 9-10N.m” are included in the recall. About 1,000 of the bikes were sold in the U.S. in addition to about 240 sold in Canada.
Affected mountain bikes were sold in bicycle stores across the U.S. from June 2016 to August 2017 for between $440 and $800.
To date, there have been no reports of injuries associated with the recall. If you own one of the models listed above, you should stop using it and contact an authorized GT dealer or Cycling Sports Group to schedule a free repair of the handlebar and stem.
