Colnago America is recalling more than 400 bicycles and frame kits in North America for a safety defect.

The front brakes can detach from the fork during use, posing a crash hazard. No injuries or incidents, however, have been reported.

The recall affects all Colnago CF10 and Colnago V1-r racing bicycles and bicycle frame kits that fit 28-inch wheels. Model numbers CF10 or V1-r are on both sides of the front fork. Model CF10 frames come in the colors black with white letters and red trim, and black with white letters and yellow trim. Model V1-r frames come in the colors black with white letters and red trim, gray with black letters and black trim, gray with white letters and white trim, and white with silver letters and silver trim.

They were sold by authorized Colnago dealers from August 2014 to April 2015 for between $4,800 and $12,000.

Consumers should stop using the recalled bicycles and bicycle frame kits and contact Colnago America for a free inspection. If the hole in the front fork for the brake mounting bolt is not at least 12 mm in depth, the front fork will be replaced free of charge.
