PhotoSpecialized Bicycle Components, Inc. -- of Morgan Hill, Calif. -- is recalling approximately 1,800 Specialized Fuse Comp and Fatboy SE bicycles with Stout cranks.

The company says that the driveside crankarm can disengage and cause riders to lose control, increasing the risk of a fall or related injury.

Products are only subject to recall if "STOUT" is printed on either of the crankarms and the bike comes equipped with a direct-mount chainring manufactured in 2017. Consumers can identify if cranks were manufactured that year by checking the serial code printed on the inside of either crankarm; affected models will start with "17."

The company asks consumers to stop using the recalled bicycles immediately and contact an Authorized Specialized Retailer for instructions on how to receive a free replacement crankarm. 

Authorized Specialized Retailer or Specialized Bicycle Components can be reached via a toll-free number by calling 877-808-8154 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (PST), Monday through Friday.

Consumers can find more information on the recall by sending an email to ridercare@specialized.com or visiting the Specialized Bicycle Components website and clicking on "Safety Notices."
