What you need to do

1) Please STOP using the bicycle immediately. 

2) Please locate and make note of the bicycle’s unique frame number. This number is usually found printed on a sticker on the downtube of the frame. Please see the video below to help you locate this.

3) Once you have located the frame number, please call our Otley store on 01943 462773 (opt 1) and our team will be able to confirm if your bicycle is affected by the recall.
