Specialized Bicycle Components Inc. has received two reports of the handlebars coming loose, but no reports of any injuries. View Slideshow: Bicycle Recall The recalled handlebars were sold on the 2005 Allez Sport, 2005 Allez Elite, 2005 Roubaix (base model) and 2005 Sequoia (base model) bicycles. The model names are on the frame of the handlebar. Specialized retailers sold the bicycles from July 2004 through August 2004 for between $900 and $1,600.
