Huffy Bicycles recalled over crash risk

Posted on August 27, 2015 12:43 pm under Bicycle Accidents

Approximately 460 Huffy bicycles are being recalled after it was found that the bicycles are equipped with a defective open quick release lever that could come in contact with the brake assembly in the front disc, causing the front wheel to suddenly stop or detach from the bicycle, causing a crash hazard, a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated on Thursday, August 27.

Two 2014 Huffy models are affected by this recall: TR 745 with model number 26504M, and TR-S 740 with model number 26604M. The model number can be found on the bottom of the bicycle frame near the pedals. Bicycles with a green dot on the underside of the quick release lever are excluded from the recall.

Bicycles equipped with the defective component were sold at Walmart.com and The Northwest Company (Cost U Less) between September 2014 and May 2015. Consumers are asked to stop using the product and to contact the company for a free quick release lever.
