Norco is asking all riders to stop using bicycles with these frames and to contact a Norco dealer or Norco directly about a replacement frame.

A bicycle frame that may crack and separate is a very serious defect. A defective or damaged bicycle that causes an injury to a rider may be the basis for a product liability claim. If you have been injured while riding a bicycle, please contact Michael Keating at 312-208-7702 or
