Saris Recalls Stationary Bicycle Trainers

Published January 22, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Saris Cycling Group, has issued a voluntary recall of about 2,000 stationary bicycle trainers.

A handle pin on the bicycle trainer can loosen during use, causing the machine to become disengaged, and pose a fall hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled trainers are a stationary frame that allows bicycles to be converted into stationary bicycles. The recalled models include: CycleOps Pro Series Trainer models 9014 (SuperMagneto Pro), 9331 (JetFluid Pro), 9460 (PowerBeam Pro), 9321 (JetFluid Pro Winter Training Kit), and 9322 (SuperMagneto Pro Winter Training Kit) without the secondary locking pin. The model number and style names are printed on the left side of the main frame of the trainer.

These trainers were sold at independent bicycle retailers nationwide from October 2008 through November 2008 for between about $400 and $1,200.
They were manufactured in United States.

Consumers with the recalled bicycle trainers should immediately stop using the product and contact Saris Cycling Group to receive a replacement trainer.
