Dynacraft Industries Inc. Recalls Mountain Bikes
WASHINGTON, D.C. (SafetyAlerts) - Dynacraft Industries
Inc., of San Rafael, Calif., is recalling about 500 mountain bikes for repair. The front
wheel could fall off while the bike is being ridden. This is because the quick release
mechanism may be difficult to tighten sufficiently. Bicycles sold on or after June 16,
1998, were assembled with the replacement quick release mechanism and can be identified by
a second inspection sticker at the base of the frame.
The recalled bikes are the Coleman CM 2100 men's and women's 21-speed mountain
bikes purchased through June 15, 1998. "Coleman...CM 2100" are written on the
bike frame. Target stores nationwide sold the bikes from May 1998 through June 15, 1998,
for about $150.
Consumers should stop riding these bikes immediately. Consumers should call
Dynacraft Industries Inc. at (800) 551-0032 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. PDT Monday through
Friday to receive a free replacement quick release mechanism, which is easier to secure.
