New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Stile Products have voluntarily recalled Tern folding bicycles due to fall hazards posed to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on June 27, 2013.
The Tern folding bicycles were recalled after discovering that the bike’s frame can crack at the hinge on the top tube, which poses a fall hazard.
“The recall involves Eclipse S11i and Verge S11i, X10, X20 and X30h models of Tern brand folding bikes. The 24-inch wheel Eclipse model was sold in a silver/black color combination. The 20-inch wheel Verge models were sold in silver/black, orange/white, red/black and yellow/grey color combinations. ‘Tern’ is printed on the front end of the top tube and on portion of the frame. The model name is printed on the middle of the top tube. The frame has a 10-character alphanumeric serial number that begins with AM1A or from AM1102 through AM1207. The serial number is stamped on the bottom bracket shell of the bike. An alphanumeric service tag number located on the front of the seat tube will be requested. The bicycles’ service tag numbers included on this recall are listed on the firm’s website,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Stile Products or take the bike to an authorized dealer to receive a free frame and have it installed at no cost.
