STEP 1: Check your Frame Number

If you own one of the above models, the first step is to check your bike’s Frame Number.

Your Frame Number is a unique 10-digit alphanumeric number (e.g. AI11334567) stamped underneath the bottom bracket.




If your Frame Number begins with “AI”, your bike MAY be part of the recall and you should follow the steps below.

If your Frame Number does NOT begin with “AI”, then your bike is NOT part of this recall.

STEP 2: What to Do

If your Frame Number starts with “AI”, please STOP riding your bicycle and use the form below to submit the requested info, plus photos of your Service Tag Number and Frame Number.  We will pass your information to your local distributor who will contact you with more information on whether or not your bicycle is affected. 


By submitting this form, you give permission to Tern, its distributors and dealers to contact you regarding this recall.

Your Service Tag Number is an 8-digit alphanumeric number found below the QR Code located on the underside of the Down Tube.

Note: Service Tag Numbers do not contain the Latin letters “I” or “O”, but may include the letters “B”, “G”, “D”, “L” and “S”. Please be careful to distinguish these letters from numbers which may look similar.

If your bicycle does not have a Service Tag or Frame Number, please STOP riding your bicycle and contact your local authorized Tern dealer for more information.

The Frame Number is a 10-digit alphanumeric number located on the Bottom Bracket Tube. Please see Step 1 from above for more information.
