Cannondale bicycle recall

Comments Off

Consumers who purchased Cannondale bikes recently should take a close look at their purchase. Cannondale markets a wide selection of aluminum bikes in the United States. The company recently announced a recall of about 1,500 bikes due to a faulty part that can cause riders to lose steering and crash. Apparently the front end forks on the recalled bikes can lose alignment without warning, causing the front wheel to turn unexpectedly. So far, no injuries have been reported. The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently issued a news release on the problem. The recall involves the model year 2008 Cannondale Adventure 2, Adventure 3, Adventure 2 Feminine and Adventure 3 Feminine bikes. The model name can be determined by looking at the bicycle’s frame. The recalled bikes have a suspension fork with the words “Cannondale AT35 Adventure Trail” marked on them. The forks in question are from the JD Components company in Taiwan. According to the press release, the bikes equipped with the Rock Shox i-ride fork are not included in the recall. The recalled bikes were sold to consumers at Cannondale dealers in the late winter and early spring of this year. Consumers should stop using the bikes immediately and call their dealer for a free repair. For additional information, visit Cannondale’s website at www.cannondale.com.
