Manitou Recalls Mountain-Bike Forks

Answer Products Recalls Six Elite And Six Super Mountain-Bike Forks

Answer Products is recalling about 850 Six Elite and Six Super mountain-bike forks found on 2002 model Specialized Rockhopper A1 Comp and Mongoose Hot Link Sommet bikes. The pre-load adjuster caps can fail, allowing the spring and adjuster to eject from the forks during compression, becoming projectiles and potentially striking the rider and causing injuries. If you have one of the affected forks, or are unsure of whether your fork is affected or not, stop using it immediately and contact us for more information. 

The Manitou logo is printed on the side of the forks and the model names Six Elite and Six Super are printed on the arch and on the fork legs. The affected bikes were sold between January and August 2002.

If you have an affected fork, visit us for a quick, free repair. For information contact us or Answer at (800) 423-0273.
