QBP recalls some Stolen BMX bikes to replace front axle washers

Published January 13, 2016

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — QBP is recalling about 1,000 Stolen BMX bikes because the front wheel can detach due to improperly fitting retention washers. Because of the improper washers, the bikes do not meet federal bicycle standards.

QBP has received one report of an incident involving the front wheel; no injuries were reported.

The recall involves Stolen series BMX bicycles, including Stolen Agent 16CB and 16FW, Stolen Compact, Stolen Casino and Stolen Stereo models. "Stolen" and the model name are printed on the frame. The Agent 16-inch bikes were sold in dark blue, the Compact 20-inch bikes were sold in neon orange and satin white, the Casino 20-inch bikes were sold in phosphate raw (gray), with highlight yellow and electric red, and the Stereo 20-inch bikes were sold in satin black and electric green.

Consumers are being told to stop using the bikes and return them to the store where purchased for a free inspection and free replacement wheel retention washers. Consumers can contact QBP toll-free at (844) 610-7484 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at qbpbmx.com and click on the Recall Information tab for more information.

The bikes were sold from September 2015 through October 2015 for between $230 and $350.
