WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of Redline bicycles due to a fall hazard.
About 200 Redline D640 bicycles were imported from China by Seattle Bike Supply of Kent, Wash., and sold nationwide at bicycle shops from December 2007 through May 2010 for about $900.
The head tube on the bicycles can separate from the frame, causing instability and increasing the chance of a fall and injury, the commission said in a statement.
The recall involves 2008 model year Redline D640 bicycles. They were sold in black. They have aluminum frames and "REDLINE" written along the frame's tube.
Consumers were advised to stop using the bicycles and contact a Redline dealer for instructions on how to receive a free frame replacement.
Consumers can call 800-283-2453 for information.
