The latest salmonella outbreak has made it's way into the bike industry. Powerbar / Nestle seems to have dodged a bullet but Cliff bar is having some recalls to some of their products. Velonews has some info: Cliff Bar PB Recall. We had very few of these products but we received and sold these before there were issues.

Giant Bicycles has also issued a recall for their Giant TCR Advanced SL. There have been some issues of the forks having problems. You can learn the details here: Giant Fork Recall. We have not sold any of these bikes.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Giro d’Italia, and the members of Cervélo TestTeam will be commemorating this landmark race by riding custom-painted Giro d’Italia Cervélo bikes. This unique, commemorative paint scheme will also be available to customers on a very
