Avanti Issue Safety Recall on EVOII TT Frame
24 Jul, 2014
Defect & potential hazard:
Sheppard’s is conducting a consumer level recall on the above product due to the possibility that the head stem
clamp can fracture causing the handle bar to become unstable. This failure may lead to the handle bar loosening
and could cause immediate loss of rider control over the bicycle. This can cause accidents with severe injuries.
In the interests of public safety, Sheppard’s is conducting a consumer recall of all potentially affected bicycles.
Models affected:
The following bicycles in the Sheppard’s range are affected:
MY 2012 to 2014 – Avanti Chrono Evo2 and Evo2 Di2
MY 2012 to 2014 – Avanti Chrono Team Evo2 and Team Evo2 Di2
The affected bicycles were available for retail sale from August 11 to July 14.
What to do:
Consumers should stop riding the bicycles immediately and contact their place of purchase to arrange for a
replacement head stem clamp to be ordered and delivered to the place of purchase for refitting. Replacement
head stem clamps are expected to be available from July 14. You will be contacted when the head stem clamps
arrive in store to arrange a time for fitting. The replacement head stem clamp will be fitted at Sheppard’s cost.
This recall has been undertaken to ensure the safety of our customers as an ongoing commitment to maintain the
highest possible standards of safety and product enjoyment at all times.
