2019-2022 SIRRUS & SIRRUS X RECALL – EXPANDED SCOPE

Dear Specialized Rider,

In September 2020, we announced a voluntary recall for two-piece slotted cranks originally equipped on select 2019 and 2020 Sirrus/Sirrus X Models. As of March 2022, we are expanding the scope of the recall to include 2021 and 2022 Sirrus X 3.0 and 4.0 bicycles.

The recall involves an inspection and potential reinstallation of the cranks to make sure they are safe to ride. The service will be performed by an Authorized Specialized Retailer at no cost to you. In most cases, no additional parts are required, and it is a quick and simple fix.

Below are instructions to help you determine if your bike is affected by this recall. If you aren’t sure, bring it to your Specialized retailer who will help you. To locate an Authorized Specialized Retailer near you, please refer to our Retailer Locator.

It’s a privilege to share our passion for bikes with you, and we are genuinely sorry we’ve let you down. Please do not ride your bike until you have had the recall service performed. You may contact your Specialized retailer to book a service appointment.

Thanks for riding Specialized.

Jon Goulet, Director of Quality

How to tell if your Sirrus crank is affected:

The bike family name (i.e., “Sirrus” or “Sirrus X”) can be identified by looking at the top tube of your bike near the handlebars (see Fig. 1). It should be in plain sight when you sit in the saddle.

The model name (i.e., “3.0” or “Sport”) is written on the right-side seat stay towards the seatpost (see Fig. 2). Look at the side of your bike where the gears are (right side when sitting on the bike) and locate the model name on the tube that goes from the rear wheel up towards your saddle.

Figures 3 and 4 are pictures of a two-piece slotted crank, which is the type of crank affected. You can see fixing bolts on each side, which clamp the left side crankarm onto the crank spindle. If you have one of the affected model bikes, and your crank looks like this, stop riding until further notice.

Figures 5 and 6 are pictures of cranks on Sirrus bikes that are NOT affected and are ok to keep riding. If you are still unsure whether your bike is affected, stop riding it and visit your nearest Authorized Specialized Retailer, or contact Specialized Rider Care.
