Specialized is set to issue a stop-ride notice and voluntary recall on its Tarmac SL7 bikes. The brand will officially announce the news on 12 October and riders will be asked to cease riding the bike until they have taken it to a dealer to be fixed. 

In a statement, the brand has said: "We will be announcing a voluntary recall of Tarmac SL7 bicycles because harsh impacts may put extraordinary stress on headset components and may initiate a crack in the fork’s steerer tube."
