Avanti Carbon Bicycles -
Corsa ER, Corsa SL and Giro C model types

The Hazard!

Model Group A bicycles have the potential for the seat clamp bolts to break, or to develop minor hairline cracks in the frame over time (possibly due to overtightening) where the seat clamp bolts enter the frame. Model Group B bicycles may have the potential for the seat clamp bolts to break during use. There is a risk of the seat post sliding downwards inside the frame whilst riding the bicycle, which may cause the rider to lose balance and potentially lead to an accident.

What to do...

Stop using the identified bicycles and contact your retailer to arrange for a replacement seat post kit to be re-fitted. Contact Sheppard Cycles New Zealand for further information.
