Dear Specialized rider,
We are issuing a voluntary recall to replace expander plugs and upgrade compression rings on Tarmac SL7 bikes and framesets. We have not received any injury reports. Specialized and retailers will contact riders that are affected by this recall via email.
Please read the instructions below to determine if your bike is affected. If so, reach out to your Authorized Specialized Retailer who will replace the current expander plug [Fig. 1A] with a new extended expander plug [Fig. 1B] and upgrade the compression ring [Fig. 2A] to the newer-style two-piece compression ring [Fig. 2B] if your bike is not already equipped with one.
It is a privilege to share our passion for bikes with you and we are committed to getting you back on the road as quickly as possible. Reach out to your retailer or contact Specialized Rider Care if you have any questions.
Thank you for riding Specialized,
