[i]Surly Long Haul Trucker recall
2 September 2010. Two highly regarded bikes, the Surly Crosscheck and the Surly Long Haul Trucker, have been recalled in Australia because of faulty brakes.
According to the recall notice, all of these bikes sold between February 2006 and August 2010 should not be ridden and owners should contact the dealer immediately.
“Failure of the brake cable could result in the cable impacting the tyre. This may potentially lead to loss of control and possible injury.
Some bicycles may not be fitted with a brake cable catch hook to the cantilever brakes.”
The Bikes were sold in specialty bicycle stores Australia wide and were supplied by Dirt Works Australia Pty Ltd.
Consumers should contact the store of purchase or Dirt Works Australia Pty Ltd. via email - firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02-9679-8400[/i]
