WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN) — Eecycleworks LLC is working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall about 400 of its eebrake caliper brakes for road bikes.
The brakes, which sold for $470-$90, can crack at the bridge. The company has received reports of two brakes cracking, resulting in crashes that produced scrapes and bruises for the riders.
The recalled models have a white "ee" logo on the front of the brakes and a five-digit serial number beginning with either "80xxx" or "09xxx" engraved on either the front or the back of the strut.
The brakes were sold from September 2008 through March 2011.
Consumers should immediately stop riding bikes with the recalled brakes and contact eecycleworks or the retailer where they purchased the brakes for a free replacement bridge.
