    You are incorrect, sir.

    “It has come to our attention that the CPSC has issued a Press Release for a recall on 2010 26” Epic and Era models with an alloy seatstay on May 5.

    This press release was issued seven months after the initiation of our recall of these models and Specialized would like to emphasize that this is not a separate issue from the corrective action initiated in November, 2009. It is simply a reminder about the recall to ensure that consumers who have purchased one of the bikes are aware of the issue.

    Recall info has been posted on the Specialized site since November, and all consumers who purchase an affected bike were informed quickly and the seatstays were replaced free of charge.

    We are confident that this recall has been handled swiftly and effectively, with most re-works performed before bikes made it to dealers, and that most in-field bikes have been addressed. If you are currently riding a bike included in the recall list, and you are unsure as to your bikes seatstay rework status, please verify with the Specialized dealer where you purchased your bike.”

    Wow, are you off base on this one; you need to do some due diligence before spewing untruths onto the ‘net.

    Given that the pictures on the Spec notice and the recall notice are the same, I think you need to offer a retraction or risk your credibility.

    That I took delivery on in NZ in January of this year.

    Has there been a serial number range released or is it possible to visually determine the differences between ‘faulty’ and ‘fixed’
