RockShox Issues Stop Sell Notice on Selected Forks

Colorado Springs, CO - RockShox, Inc. of Colorado Springs, CO, has issued a Stop Sell Notice to its customers for the 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front suspension bicycle forks that were built with compression rods that can fracture in use resulting in a loss of control and possible serious injury to the user. RockShox Inc. has received reports of 23 failures of the compression rods and 2 reports of minor injuries. Injuries included minor scrapes, abrasions and bruising.

RockShox has notified the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding this issue and is working with the Commission staff to develop an effective corrective action plan as soon as possible. RockShox will be distributing recall notices with details of the corrective action plan and remedy to all customers and consumers as soon as the Commission staff has approved the plan.

RockShox front suspension bicycle forks subject to this notice are the 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro models. The 2001 Jett TT model comes in four colors - black, silver, red and white with RockShox box shaped logos on the front of each leg and RockShox decals with the "Judy TT" model designation running vertically on each leg. The 2001 Judy TT Special model comes in three colors - red, white and black with RockShox box shaped logos on each leg and large "Judy" decals running vertically on each leg. The 2001 Jett model comes in three colors - black, silver and white with RockShox box shaped logos on each leg and RockShox decals with the "Jett" model designator running vertically on each leg. The 2001 Metro model comes in three versions. The Metro SL comes in three colors - black, white and silver with RockShox box shaped logos on each leg and Metro decals with the "SL" version designator running vertically on each leg. The Metro XC comes in two colors - black and silver with RockShox box shaped logos on each leg and Metro decals with the "XC" version designator running vertically on each leg. The Metro C comes in three colors - black, and silver with RockShox box shaped logos on each leg and Metro decals with the "C" version designator running vertically on each leg. Additionally, all RockShox 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front suspension bicycle forks have serial numbers in two locations - one engraved on the back side of the crown and a second one on a bar-coded sticker attached to the lower legs. These serial numbers will begin with 01 (example: 011F013448) designating the product as a 2001 model. Any RockShox front suspension bicycle fork with a serial number that does not begin with 01 is not affected by this recall.

The RockShox 2001 Judy TT, Judy TT Special, Jett and Metro model front suspension bicycle forks were sold as OEM equipment on various makes and models of bicycles and as aftermarket products primarily through independent bicycle dealers. These front suspension forks were first available in June of 2000 and as aftermarket products sold for approximately $89 - $149 (US) depending on the model.

Consumers should stop riding their bicycles immediately. Consumers who need assistance with determining if their RockShox front suspension fork is affected by this notice should call the RockShox Recall Hotline at 866-888-6192. Consumers may also write RockShox - RockShox Inc., Attn: Recall Task Force, 1610 Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO 80907.

Potential Problems in Don Valley Trails

Paul Skafel just drop a note to us that a Toronto city councillor named Jane Pitfield is pushing for a road extension called the Redway Road that could affect trails in the Leaside area of the city. Apparently, she is part of a group that hopes to push through the expressway project under 'local road improvements' for her district.

The matter has not been voted on yet, because of the huge garbage fight (if you aren't from Ontario, briefly: Toronto wants to ship its garbage to dump in a mine in northern Ontario, there are a number of groups opposed).

If you want to contact your local councillor on the matter, here is an e-mail list:
