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.
Consumers should stop riding the recalled bicycles immediately and contact us to arrange for a free repair.
PLEASE NOTE: Felt bicycles that have forks with carbon steerers are not included in this recall.
