From 2008/08/21 Road Bike Rider Newsletter:
Cervelo is recalling about 5,800 Wolf SL carbon forks manufactured by True
Temper in China. The steerer tube can break during normal use, causing the
rider to lose control and crash. Cervelo has received 12 reports of these
forks failing, resulting in one rider suffering a broken wrist and another
receiving abrasions. The recalled forks have the words "Wolf Superlite" and
a related logo just below the crown on each leg, and the letters "SL" above
each dropout. The recalled forks may be on Cervelo bicycle models R3, R3 SL,
Soloist Carbon, Soloist Carbon SL and some P3 Carbon framesets and bikes.
Also, some shops sold these forks for about $475 from November 2005 through
July 2007. If your bike has a Wolf SL fork, stop riding it and contact a
Cervelo dealer to have a replacement fork installed without charge. More
info and ID photos are on the Cervelo website at
