BICYCLE FORKS About 14,200 bicycles with Advanced Group carbon forks sold at authorized specialized retailers nationwide from June 2010 through August 2011 for between $700 and $2,000. The brake component housed within the bicycle’s carbon fork can disengage from the fork and allow the brake assembly to contact the wheel spokes while rotating, posing a fall hazard. The company has received two reports of the brake component disengaging from the carbon fork. No injuries have been reported.
