Specialized Shiv Brake Lever Recall

Tektro TL-83 brake lever.In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Specialized has voluntarily issued a safety recall on all of its Specialized Shiv brake levers (see photos, click to enlarge).

This recall involves Tektro TL-83 brake levers that were original equipment on 2010/11 model-year Specialized S-Works Shiv bicycle frame modules (image below, right) and 2012 S-Works Shiv TT bicycle frame modules. They were also sold as aftermarket service parts for these modules. The frame modules were sold at Specialized bicycle retailers from April 2010 to February 2012 for between $5,500 and $6,100. The brake levers sold for about $80 as service parts.

The levers are modified versions of the Tektro TL-720 brake lever. They are black aluminum and have a quick-release slot at the top of the lever arm. Model number “TL-720” can be read on the side of the lever arm when braking action is applied.

Specialized S-Works Shiv frame modules.The recall issue
The adjuster cap and brake cable can slide out of position and make the brakes non-operational. This can cause a rider to lose control of the bicycle and crash. Specialized is aware of one incident worldwide in which the rider lost the function of both brakes. Fortunately, no injury or damage was reported.

The remedy
Consumers should immediately stop riding bicycle frame modules equipped with the recalled brake levers and return the levers or modules to us for free replacement brake levers.

Contact information
For more information contact Specialized Bicycle customer service between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday at 877-808-8154 or www.specialized.com.
