Kent, WA, and Taiwan  (SafetyAlerts) - Sun Rise Bicycle Industrial Co. Ltd. of Taiwan and Raleigh America Inc., of Kent, Wash. have recalled about 2,800 bicycles. The frames on these bicycles can break, which can cause riders to lose control and crash.

Raleigh America has received 13 reports of frames breaking including one incident where a consumer reported a broken heel.

The recall involves the 2002 Diamondback X-10 and X-20 Bicycles. These are full-suspension, Y-frame mountain bikes. They are either silver and black or black and blue. ?Diamondback? and ?X10? or ?X20? are written on the down and bottom tubes.

Authorized Diamondback dealers sold the X-10 and X-20 bicycles nationwide from September 2001 through October 2002 for about $550 for the X-10 and $770 for the X-20.

Consumers should immediately stop using these bicycles and return them to an authorized Diamondback dealer to receive a free replacement frame.
