REI Recalls Novara Trailer Bikes

Published October 16, 2007

KENT, WA (BRAIN)—REI is recalling about 5,200 Novara Afterburner Trailer Bicycles. The children’s trailer bicycle can detach from the adult bicycle, posing a fall hazard to children.

REI has received one report of a children’s trailer bicycle detaching from the adult bicycle. No injuries have been reported. The single-wheel children’s bicycle attaches to, and cannot be operated independently of, an adult bicycle.

The Chinese-made product was sold at REI stores nationwide from February 2007 through June 2007 for about $160. REI said consumers should immediately stop using the bicycle trailer, visit the nearest REI store or contact REI for a free replacement part, a full refund or credit.
