How are Specialized products tested for safety
For several years, Specialized, its suppliers, and test labs have been testing Specialized branded products for compliance with more rigid criteria than what's contained in the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act ). When the CPSIA was enacted into law, Specialized established a team inside the Company to meet and study the legislation and develop a comprehensive plan to ensure compliance. We also personally met with the CPSC staff, along with our industry partners, to make sure our planning would satisfy federal regulators. Based on this, we believe that all Specialized branded products have met, currently meet, and of course, will meet the new CPSC regulations as they apply to our products sold in the United States.
Specialized issues COCs (certificates of compliance) for the following categories of products:
D. Children's products

How do i determine the size of my bike?
First, look over your frame to see if there are any stickers indicating its size (for example: 17, 19, M, L, 56, 58, etc.). If a sticker indicating the size does not exist, then follow these simple steps:
1. Measure the length of your bicycle's head tube. The head tube is the part of the frame that the front fork inserts into. It is the forward most part or "tube" of the frame and it is arranged in a slight angle off of vertical. You will need to measure this length in millimeters.
2. Once you have the length of your bicycle's head tube in millimeters, you can then compare that length to the geometry chart for your corresponding year and model of bicycle. A geometry chart is a chart that lists all of the important measurements of your bicycle's frame in relation to each size the bicycle was made in. The geometry chart for your specific model and year (as well as other valuable information about your specific bicycle model) can be found in the archive section of the Specialized website. The archive section can be found by hovering your mouse cursor over the red Specialized banner in the upper left hand corner of any page on the website, then clicking on "Bikes" then clicking on "Archive."
3. Once you've located your specific model and year in the online archive, click on the "Geometry" tab located under the photo of your bicycle. This will show you the geometry chart for your specific model and year in accordance with all of the sizes the bicycle came in.
4. Locate the row in the geometry chart labeled "head tube length" and scan across the row until you find the measurement that matches the measurement that you took from your bicycle's head tube.
5. One you've found a match, scan to the top of that column and you'll see the corresponding size of your bicycle.
Note: A serial number does not indicate the size, model, or year of a bicycle. We will not be able to tell you this information with only the serial number. If you do not know the model and year of your bicycle, you will need to find it manually via the photos in the online archive.
Once again, if you place bike order online. You will receive a call from Specialized confirming you are placing on the right order and your assembly detail.
where can i find my bike's serial number?
Almost all of our serial numbers are located on the bottom bracket shell of the frame. Some newer models will have a non-removable sticker on the down tube near the bottom bracket. Specialized serial numbers typically start with the prefix "WSBC," "WUD," "STT," or "STE."
If you don't know where the bottom bracket shell of the bike is, simply turn the bike upside-down and the bottom bracket is the part of the frame that the cranks run through. You will see the serial number stamped into the frame down there.
can i repair a crashed helmet?
Helmets are not repairable. We recommend that you replace the helmet if you hit your head at all. Even the slightest hit can compromise the integrity of the helmet. You simply need to take your crashed helmet into a local Specialized retailer, and they can help you process that as a loyalty replacement and give you 20% off the retail price of a new helmet. Please note that the loyalty replacement does not pertain to helmets that are older than three years old.
what are the recommended service intervals on the fork and rear shock?
When your shock is in active use, a small amount of residual grease will purge from the seals. This is normal—it is not the oil leaking from the shock. These seals need to be damp with grease, and a little bit of oil on the shock is the sign that things are working properly.
To prevent wear and damage to the shock, we recommend the following maintenance schedule for Specialized branded suspension forks and rear shocks:
• Set sag every ride.
• Adjust rebound every ride.
• Clean shock body every ride.
• Air sleeve maintenance Every 50 hours.
• Clean aluminum pivot reducers and check for wear grease every 50 hours.
• Have your retailer send your fork/shock to the Specialized Service Center for inspection and oil change every 150 hours or annually.
• For FOX and RockShox co-branded BRAIN suspension products, the air sleeve/lower leg maintenance must be performed every 30 hours.
• For FOX and RockShox co-branded BRAIN suspension products, your retailer must send the product to the Specialized Service Center for inspection and full oil change/service every 100 hours or annually.
CAUTION! All internal shock maintenance must be performed by an Authorized Specialized Service Center.
