    Sad News about Death of Cyclist Due to fork failure

    REHOBOTH, Mass. — Rehoboth police say a man who died after falling off his bicycle this week may have been the victim of a defect with his racing bike that prompted a recall by the manufacturer.

    The man was found by an off-duty officer at about 5:30 p.m. Monday. He was taken to the hospital with severe head injuries where he was pronounced dead.

    Police say the man, who was wearing a helmet, is 58 and from Attleboro but did not release his name.

    Police say it does not appear a motor vehicle was involved.

    But the type of bike he was riding had been recalled because of the possibility of the front forks cracking.

    Anyone aware of any recalls?

    There has been a few that come to mind. I know Giant did a recall recently on one of their road bike forks and Specialized did one on their Tricross and Felt has had a bunch on their forks. Too bad they didn't mention the bike. I have a kids so I tend to check the recalls a lot on consumer reports. Amazing how many things are recalled and I remember over the years several bikes being recalled for forks. Too bad they didn't mention the brand in the article.

    I can't post a link yet but check out saferproducts dot gov and you can do a search.

    You can do a search on their site. I've actually had a few child related items I've bought recalled and of course as I never really register the products wouldn't have known.

    It would be nice if the LBS where you bought your bike would notify you when there is a recall, the way some car dealers do.
    Insert something clever here:

    An Update on the Story, the bike was a Cervelo.

    REHOBOTH - A bicyclist who died after a fall on a local road Monday has been identified by police as a 58-year-old Attleboro man, and investigators are looking into whether a defect with his racing bike that had prompted a national recall could be to blame.

    Police still had not released the name of the victim Tuesday night.

    "We just want to make sure relatives are aware of it. It was kind of sudden," police Sgt. Norman Todd said.

    The victim was wearing a helmet, but still suffered severe head injuries, police said.

    "At this point, we ruled out another motor vehicle involved," Todd said. "Our investigation is focusing on a possible defect in the bicycle." That defect relates to the front forks of the racing bike possibly cracking. The type of bicycle the man was riding, a Cervelo, has been part of a national recall because of that problem, police said.

    Police responded to Homestead Avenue near Allen's Lane about 5:25 p.m. Monday after receiving a call from off-duty Patrolman Paul McGovern of a bicyclist in the road.

    Police and firefighter/EMTs performed CPR on the victim before he was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, where he was pronounced dead.

    Homestead Avenue is in north central Rehoboth.

    "It's not too far away" from Attleboro, Todd said.

    The incident is being investigated by Todd and Detective Brian Ramos with assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis Unit.

    From Cervelo's site about 2 items being recalled and ways to identify them. First a frame, second a fork.

    Thanks for the info. Was thinking about going with a Colnago Star carbon fork for my bike but after reading this my steel one on my Colnago seems like a better option.

    Steel fails too. I had a coworker spend 3 months in a coma and have major facial reconstructive surgery when his steel fork folded on a 35 mph decent..

    Check your equipment and register it with the manufacturer. Be careful out there.

    I've never owned or shopped for a Cervelo, but even I knew they recalled the Wolf forks.

    Check your LBS

    Most LBS have a bulletin board and may will post recalls there. After a ride I stopped by one of my LBS and staring at me was a picture of my cranks attached to a recall notice. The noticed had all the numbers you would need to determine if your product was part of the recall.

    Epic list! Interesting to see the brands present and not present on that list.

    I've had forks fail on me twice. Both snapped off at the steerer tube. First one I face planted in some gravel. Cut my face and lips up good. The second one was on the tarmac. Chipped two teeth and tore my lip open. Had to get stiches in my lip. I've had stiches other places before but nothing hurt like getting your lips sewn up.
    I was a teenager when this happened. My parents should have sued, but they're not like that. Or at least they could have bought me a better bike the second time. They're not like that either.

    Had an original Cervelo Soloist with the Wolf fork when it was recalled. Tried to get Cervelo to give me the new fork that was supposed to replace it, but no dice due to
    not enough in inventory. Went with a Easton fork instead, and eventually sold the bike a bit after that.

    Damn, sorry to hear. I guess that's why my Cervelo had a 3T fork on it?
