Last night I received notification through Competitive Cyclist that the Wolf SL fork on my Cervélo SLC-SL was being recalled. Though I've not experienced any problem with the bike or the fork, I removed the fork immediately and will be sending it off to Competitive later today per their instructions. I came across this enlightening explanation from Gerard Vroomen posted in the Cervélo forums. Some one should have told True Temper to read the definitive Tylenol Case Study again.
Finally, just like you I am disappointed. I am mostly disappointed about two things. First, that things can't go faster under the rules, and second that after we specifically chose a US company for these forks because we thought they would have the same views as us, we found that they could not be convinced to see a problem where we felt there was one. But I am also proud of two things. First of all of our engineers who were able to replicate this issue in the lab so we could finally commence the recall, as this was like finding a needle in a hay stack. So for them to figure out under what circumstances exactly this occurs (not straightforward at all) was amazing. And I am proud that we are doing a multi-million dollar recall on something that is really firstly somebody else's responsiblity. I'm proud that Phil agreed immediately without blinking when I suggested that if TrueTemper didn't want to do the recall, we should.
That's just my 2 cents, Gerard Cervélo SA
