About 25,350 SRAM Hydraulic Road Rim Brakes and Hydraulic Road Disc Brakes for bicycles have been recalled by SRAM, LLC, of Chicago, Ill. The brake systems can fail, posing a crash and injury hazard. The recalled bicycle brake models include SB Red Hydraulic Road Disc, SB Red Hydraulic Road Rim, SB 700 Hydraulic Road Disc and SB 700 Hydraulic Road Rim, used as either front or rear brakes. The SB RED brake lever is labeled “RED” on the body of the lever assembly. The SB 700 brake lever is labeled “S-Series” on the body of the lever assembly. The serial numbers for the recalled brakes have the digit “3” as the fourth digit of the serial number. The serial number can be found on the bottom of the caliper body. The company says it received 95 reports of brakes failing in the U.S. One minor injury was reported in the U.S. and another in Australia, according to the company.
Specialty bicycle retailers nationwide sold the brakes from May 2013 to December 2013 for between $285 and $581 for the disc or rim brakes. Bicycles sold with the SRAM disc or rim range from $2,500 to $7,500. Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles equipped with the recalled SRAM brake systems and contact any SRAM dealer to arrange for a free replacement product to be installed and to receive a $200 product voucher or cash per customer.
