Authorized Specialized Bicycle Components retailers from May 2011 to June 2012. The bicycle frame modules sold for between $5,500 and $6,100. The brake levers sold for about $80 as service parts.
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.
Consumers should immediately stop riding modules equipped with TL-83 brake levers and return the levers or modules to an authorized Specialized Bicycle Components retailer for free replacement brake levers.
