Dynacraft Industries Has Recalled Bicycles Sold at Target

San Rafael, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Dynacraft Industries Inc. has recalled about 4,700 Vertical XL2 mountain bicycles. The forks on these bicycles can break apart, causing riders to lose control, fall and suffer serious injury.

Dynacraft has received six reports of the forks breaking apart on these bicycles resulting in injuries that include abrasions, cuts, bruises and broken teeth.

The recall includes only 24-inch Vertical XL2 mountain bicycles, with model number 8524-21. A label on the frame near the crank housing identifies the model number. The bicycles are red. "Vertical" is written on the top tube, and "XL2" is written on the down tube.

Target stores nationwide sold these mountain bikes from August 1999 through March 2000 for about $130.

Consumers should stop using these bicycles immediately and contact Dynacraft Industries for information on receiving a free replacement fork and free installation.
