WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Campus Cruisers, has issued a voluntary recall of about 100 Eastside Fix bicycles.
The bicycle's front fork can crack or break, causing a sudden loss of steering control and posing a fall hazard to bicyclists.
The firm has received four reports of lateral cracks beneath the front fork's crown. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Campus Cruisers' Eastside Fix model bicycles. The single speed bicycle has an aluminum frame and fork. The bicycles were sold in royal blue with a white leather seat and white gel grips on the handlebars.
These were sold at independent bicycle dealers nationwide from March 2010 through May 2010 for about $450. They were manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately stop riding bicycles with the recalled front forks. Consumers can contact their local Campus Cruisers dealer to schedule a free repair. Consumers who are not near an authorized dealer should contact Campus Cruisers for assistance.
