MERIDA Speeder 20 Disc bicycles sold nation-wide between August 2016 and February 2017.
In some circumstances, the fork dropout safety tabs may not be sufficient to hold the front wheel in position if the quick release lever is opened (as per the above picture).
If the defect occurs whilst the bicycle is in use, serious injury or death can occur.
Consumers should stop using the bicycle immediately and contact their local MERIDA dealer to inspect the fork and if necessary have a replacement fork fitted or to receive a full refund of the purchase price. Click here to find your nearest store.
