Lida Bicycle Has Recalled Men's Bicycles

China (SafetyAlerts) - Lida Bicycle Co. Ltd. has recalled 2,400 men's bicycles. The frames of these bicycles can break apart, causing the rider to fall and suffer injuries.

Lida Bicycle and the bicycle distributor, Kent International Inc., of Parsippany, N.J., have received four reports of the frames of these bicycles breaking. Two riders suffered minor contusions and abrasions. The other two riders were not injured.

The bicycle is a 26-inch, 21-speed, dual-suspension men's bicycle with a double-bar, white frame. "Kent" is written on the down tube and head tube of the bicycle. The decal reading "2100DH" or "PRO-X" appears on the top tube near the head of the bicycle.

Discount department stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois, and independent bicycle shops in New York and New Jersey sold these bicycles from April 2002 through August 2002 for between $200 and $250.

Consumers should stop riding these bicycles immediately, and return them to the store where purchased for a refund or store credit. For more information, consumers should call Kent Bicycles at (800) 451- 5368 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
