Civia Cycles Recalling Bikes, Forks

Published April 11, 2010

BLOOMINGTON, MN (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Civia Cycles, has issued a volunary recall of about 800 Hyland bicycles and carbon bicycle forks.

The bicycle fork can crack or break, posing a fall hazard to the consumer.

Civia Cycles has received two reports of forks cracking and one report of a fork breaking resulting in an abrasion on face and bruised ribs.

This recall involves all Civia Hyland bicycles sold with original equipment carbon fiber forks and all Civia Carbon forks sold as aftermarket products. The forks are black and have the word “Civia” forged into the fork dropout.

These were sold by specialty bicycle retailers nationwide from April 2008 through February 2010 for between $1,675 and $3,500 for Civia Hyland complete bicycles and for about $195 for Civia Carbon forks. They were manufactured in Taiwan

Consumers should immediately stop riding these bicycles with the recalled forks and contact an authorized Civia Cycles dealer for a free replacement fork. All known users have been contacted.

For additional information, contact Civia Cycles toll-free at (877) 774-6208 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.civiacycles.com.
