Felt recalls some aluminum 'cross bikes over frame concerns

Published December 2, 2014

IRVINE, Calif. (BRAIN) — Felt Bicycles is working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall about 150 cyclocross bikes because the frames can break. The company said Tuesday that it has already located and replaced 127 of the relevant frames.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the problem, which was identified on 2015 model-year bikes with aluminum frames.

The affected bikes are models F65X and F85X. The 2015 F65X bicycle has a satin black aluminum frame with "Felt" printed in white letters and a diagonal wide white stripe next to a thin white stripe on the frame. The 2015 F85X bicycle has a dark red berry-colored aluminum frame with diagonal stripes in black, mint green and yellow on the frame. The Felt logo is printed on the bike frame and the model number is printed on the chainstay of the frame.

Consumers are being told to immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact their local Felt Bicycles dealer for a free inspection and frame replacement.

The bikes were made in Taiwan and sold at IBDs from June 2014 through September 2014 for between $1,200 and $1,500.
