Wolf Sl Recall

Fork recall: Cervelo is recalling about 5,800 Wolf SL carbon forks manufactured by True Temper in China. The steerer tube can break during normal use, causing the rider to lose control and crash. Cervelo has received 12 reports of these forks failing.

Its nice (and responsible of them) of them to recall after seeing how thin it is with its reprecussion, it should have been sooner.

Main cause of this failure is the alloy insert isnt really reinforcing the carbon wall, especially when the steerer lenght of this alloy insert with the star fangle nut is just above the headset.(a high stress point)in combination of its thin walled steerer tubing thus it break where the insert ends.
