Specialized recalls Venge ViAS rim-brake bikes

Rear wheel can fall out of the dropouts and fracture the rear triangle

Specialized is recalling about 1,000 Venge ViAS frames sold as complete bikes at the S-Works and Pro level along with S-Works modules. According to the official recall, the rear wheel can come out of the dropouts, which can cause fractures in the rear triangle and that can cause a rider to lose control and fall.

It appears the rear quick release isn’t getting an effective bite on the dropouts, and can slip out. Specialized PR manager Katie Sue Gruener said the company is asking all riders with a Venge ViAS rim bike to please stop riding it and contact their local Specialized retailer for a new rear derailleur hanger and a safety inspection.

Specialized launched the Venge ViAS aero bike as a rim-brake model first, then recently introduce the disc-brake version. The disc bike is not affected.

Specialized has received seven reports of fractures in the rear triangle from riders in the United States, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. One report involved a minor injury when the rider couldn’t unclip from his pedals.

The Specialized Venge ViAS bikes were sold between July 2015 and September 2016 for about $6,200 to $12,900.
