Quality recalls some WeThePeople BMX bikes and cranks

Published October 29, 2015

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — QBP is recalling some BMX cranksets and complete bikes that were spec’d with the cranksets because the crank spindles can break.

The distributor is working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Canadian officials to recall about 70 bikes and 170 cranks sold in the U.S. and 40 bikes and 40 cranks sold in Canada.

The recall affects WeThePeople Envy BMX bicycles and aftermarket ECLAT Aeon BMX cranksets.

The Envy BMX model has a chromoly frame painted dark gold. The bottom bracket has an “ENVY20.6” or “ENVY21” stamp.

The ECLAT Aeon BMX cranksets have a steel, two-piece construction. Printed on the left side of the spindle is “ESS Eclat 22mm,” and next to the pedal, on the crankarm, it says “Aeon.” Printed on the inside of the crankarm is “Eclat Germany” followed by the crankarm length, either “170mm” or “175mm.”

The bikes were sold from September 2014 through July this year. The complete bikes retailed for $1,100 and the cranks sold for $180.

WeThePeople has received five reports of the crankset spindles breaking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are being told to immediately stop riding the recalled bicycles and cranksets and return to the store where purchased for a free inspection and free replacement spindle.

Consumers can contact QBP toll-free at (844) 610-7484 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit qbpbmx.com for more information.
