Mountain bikes recalled over fall risks

Posted on December 7, 2015 2:55 pm under Product Liability

Approximately 645 units of Felt Bicycles’ mountain bikes were recalled on December 2 due to the carbon fiber seat posts cracking and breaking, which poses a fall hazard to the consumers, causing injuries.

The U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission posted that the recalled bicycles were the 2015 models Felt Double Double 30, NINEe 20, and Edict 1. The model name is placed on the top tube of the bicycles, while the Felt logo is on the bottom tube of the Double Double 30 and NINEe 20 and on the top tube of the Edict 1.

The company received 10 reports of the seat posts breaking, although no injuries have been reported yet.

The recalled products were sold in bicycle specialty stores nationwide from August 2014 until September 2015.

Consumers are advised to stop the use of the bicycles. Free inspection and seat post replacement will be given when consumers contact their local Felt Bicycles dealer.
