Properly operating brakes are critical to the safe operation of a bicycle. That is why Virginia bike accident attorney Doug Landau took note when reading about the recall of hundreds of after-market and original equipment hydraulic bicycle brakes.
The after-market brakes were sold at specialty bicycle retailers nationwide from May 2013 to December 2013 for between $285 and $581 for the disc or rim brakes. Bicycles sold with the SRAM disc or rim range from $2,500 to $7,500.
If you have a bike equipped with these brakes, immediately stop using it and contact any SRAM dealer to arrange for a free replacement product to be installed and to receive a $200 product voucher or cash per customer.
