Safety Notices 2021 Tarmac SL7 Recall
REASON FOR THIS RECALL
Harsh frontal impacts, e.g., impacting a deep pothole with significant force, may put extraordinary stress on headset components and may initiate a crack in the fork’s steerer tube. A damaged fork may break if continued to be used, posing fall and injury hazards.
All Tarmac SL7 bicycles are affected by this recall. If your bike is not on this list then you are not affected by this recall.
Tarmac SL7 models have the word “Tarmac” written on the back of the bicycle’s seat tube and can be distinguished from older generation Tarmac models by their integrated (hidden) cable routing through the headset (see photo below).
If your bicycle was not originally equipped with an integrated cable routing headset design like the one pictured above, you are not affected. Pictured below is a typical headset and stem clamping design. If your bike looks like this you are not affected.

Santa Cruz recalls 2020 aluminum Santa Cruz & Juliana models
Santa Cruz Bicycles, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, is conducting a recall of the following Santa Cruz Bicycles and Juliana model-year 2020 aluminum frame model and color combinations:
- Nomad 4a Aluminum in Black or Eggplant;
- Bronson 3a Aluminum in Red Tide or Olive;
- Roubion 3a Aluminum in Maritime Grey;
- 5010 3a Aluminum in Dark Grey, or Robins Egg
- Furtado 3a Aluminum in Fog.
This recall does not affect any other Santa Cruz Bicycles or Juliana models or colors.
Some aluminum frames were thermally damaged during a non-standard paint stripping operation and may bend or buckle, which could pose a fall hazard.
If you have one of the affected model and color combinations listed above, you can take the bike back to your local dealer, who can register the bike for you and arrange for shipment free of charge. Taking the bike to your dealer is the most efficient way to arrange for inspection and recall processing. If you prefer, or do not have a convenient local dealer, you can also register the bike by filling an online form at https://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/aluminum-frame-recall.
Once we receive the bike, we will inspect the aluminum frame. If we determine that your frame is not affected, we will return the bike to your dealer or to you. If your frame is affected, we will notify you so you can decide whether you would like a replacement frame or a voucher for the value of the frame. The voucher can be used towards the purchase of another Santa Cruz or Juliana product.
