MADISON, WI (BRAIN)—Saris wanted to clarify information recently released by the Consumer Products Safety Commission regarding the company's voluntary recall of some CycleOps trainers.
Saris Cycling Group identified this problem in November 2008 and proactively informed the CPSC and its customer base to cease use and return the recalled product to us.
· The CPSC released information pertaining to this over two months later. This is not a new recall notice.
· 2,248 trainers are affected by this recall notice. They are CycleOps model numbers 9331, 9460, 9014, 9321 and 9322.
· To date 1,954 trainers have been returned. This represents 90 percent of the affected units.
· These trainers were sold in October 2008 and November 2008 at Independent Bicycle Dealers (IBDs) nationwide.
