Specialized FutureShock Recall



Hi Riders,

Rider safety is always paramount.

Specialized are conducting a voluntary recall of the steerer tube collar on select Roubaix, Ruby, Diverge and Sirrus bicycles which were sold between 2016 and 2018. The collar may be susceptible to stress corrosion cracking which may result in a sudden loss of steering control.

We are asking riders to STOP riding the affected bicycles and to bring them in for assessment and replacement of the affected part.

We have a limited number of collars showing up  weekly and it’s our aim to get our riders back on their bikes as soon as physically possible and to limit any down time.

We are asking riders to register on the below link, so we can best allocate collars as they come through, and also schedule the fix so we can do it whilst you wait.

Regards Aaron and The Team @ The Ride

#SendMeToIgnition – double pass giveaway!

Want to win a double pass to the Ignition MTB Festival? Today is your lucky day! Just like last year we are running a short photo competition and giving you a chance to get a free double pass for the weekend!

Thanks to Blue Dirt and The Ride Cycles, you and a mate could be off to Falls Creek for a whole weekend of adventures, riding and shuttles!

Simply upload your best photo of you riding with your mates on Instagram, tag @theridecycles and @bluedirtmountainbiking in you post, and share your photo with the #SendMeToIgnition hashtag! It’s that simple!

The best photo and caption will win a double pass for the weekend, with bonus points for creativity! Terms and conditions at bottom of the page.


Terms and Conditions 

  1. This is not a photography competition. Photos will not be judged on the quality of the photo. Everyone has a chance. Make us laugh, make us cry, get creative or do something different to stand out. That is what counts! 
  2. It must be your own photo, or a photo that you have permission to use. No ownership, no entry. 
  3. Anything else required for the weekend such as transport and accommodation is not included. The prize is strictly 2x Ignition MTB Festival entries. 
  4. If you win and cannot attend, the 2x entries will be transferable so long as you have not redeemed the entry voucher. If you have redeemed the entry voucher and then cannot make it, entry is not transferable. 
  5. If you win and have already entered, find two other mates, give them the passes and drag them along with you. The more the merrier! 
  6. Not redeemable for cash or any other cool loot. 
  7. There is no limit to the amount of times you can enter.
