Electra has recalled some models of their popular "Amsterdam" bicycle after receiving reports that the chain can derail and cause riders to fall. The affected models, which are equipped with chainguards, are the Amsterdam Classic 3, Original 3, Royal 8, and Sport 3 styles. Bicycles with frame numbers beginning with “F06” or “EL” or bicycles with chainguards marked “06/08” are not included in this recall. Frame numbers can be on the bottom of the bottom bracket.

Consumers should bring their Amsterdam bicycles to their Electra Bicycle dealer for a free inspection and replacement chainguard part. More info in this recall notice PDF.

Good grief... so somebody actually does a commuter bike wiht chain guards and they can't do it right :(

Wonder how they'd mess up turn signals :)
