Specialized Spots Fake Frames Online

Published November 18, 2008

MORGAN HILL, CA (BRAIN)—Counterfeit high-end Specialized raod bike frames are circulating the Internet, according to a press release from the supplier.

S Works Tarmac SL framesets, sizes 52 and 54 centimeters in red and blue, are being sold on eBay, Craigslist and other regional online sources.

The company has observed fake framesets with several incorrect characteristics including no serial numbers on frame and/or fork; fork serial numbers are under crown; fork serial numbers start with K85L; and headset carbon cone with FSA logo.

The framesets may also include a counterfeit S Works Pave seatpost.

Specialized warns that the counterfeit product is not safe, should not be ridden and is not covered under the company's warranty.
