Kent, WA—The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Seattle Bike Supply have voluntarily recalled about 200 Redline D640 bicycles over fall hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on December 9, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the head tube can separate from the frame, causing the bike rider to lose control and fall, which poses a risk of injury.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves all 2008 Redline D640 bicycles. The bicycles were sold in black and have aluminum frames. ‘REDLINE’ is written down the frame’s tube. The model number is written on the frame’s top tube. The bicycles were sold at bicycle specialty stores nationwide from December 2007 to May 2010 for about $900.”
Consumers are advised to contact a local Redline bicycle dealer to receive a free frame replacement.
For further information, consumers can contact Redline Bicycles at (800) 283-2453 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.Redlinebicycles.com.’
