WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Seattle Bike Supply, have issued a voluntary recall of about 350 Redline Conquest Pro bicycles and framesets from 2010.
The bicycle's fork legs can separate from the fork crown and cause the rider to lose control, posing a risk of serious injury if the rider falls.
The firm is aware of three reports of forks separating with minor injuries reported in one of the incidents.
This recall involves all 2010 Redline Conquest Pro Cyclocross bicycles and framesets. The bicycles and framesets were sold in pearl white/blue and have aluminum frames with carbon fiber forks and aluminum steerer tubes.
These bikes were sold at bicycle specialty stores nationwide between August 2009 and November 2009 for about $1,900 for the bicycle and about $550 for the frameset. They were manufactured in Taiwan.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and framesets and contact their local Redline bicycle dealer to receive a free inspection and fork replacement.
