Felt Bicycles, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall for the following 2009 model-year Felt bicycles:
These models were sold at Felt bicycle dealers from October 2008 through May 2010 for between $2,300 and $3,100. The model name is printed on the bicycle frame.
The recalled bicycles have forks with carbon blades and aluminum steerers (the part that's hidden inside the frame; photo, left). These steerers can break, causing riders to lose control; and potentially result in a crash and possible injury. One minor injury has been reported. These steerers were made by ADK Technology Limited of China.
Consumers should stop riding the recalled bicycles immediately and contact us to arrange for a free repair.
PLEASE NOTE that Felt bicycles that have forks with with carbon steerers are not included in this recall.
