Orange Mountain Bikes has announced a recall of the fork on its RX9 bike. The faulty part has the potential to break. Cyclists who have purchased the RX9 have reported creaking coming from the fork and there has been at least two reported incidents of the steerer tube detaching from the rest of the fork. The issue relates to the height of the fork cathead, which connects the fork steerer tube to the legs of the fork. Owners of an RX9 can check their fork to see if they need to replace it by measuring the depth of the cathead. The faulty catheads are 30mm at the centre across the cathead. Forks that are safe to use are 35mm at the centre across the cathead.
Thanks for the heads-up. I'll keep on the look out for anyone with this bike.
