The CPSC gave two recall notices this morning for bicycle products:

2007/2008 Felt F1X Cyclocross Bicycles


This is apparently a reminder of an earlier recall. The bicycle’s fork steerer tube can break, causing the rider to lose control and fall, posing a risk of injury. Felt Bicycles has received six reports of the bicycle forks breaking, including two reports of minor cuts and scrapes. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact a local Felt Bicycles dealer to receive a free inspection and repair. For additional information contact Felt Bicycles toll-free at (866) 433-5887 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday. Visit Felt's website for more info.

2009 Burley d’lite ST and Solo ST Child Trailers


The axle assembly’s internal sleeve can loosen, causing one wheel to separate from the trailer. This poses a risk of injury to the child occupant or bike rider. The recalled products are two-wheeled child trailers designed to carry one or two children behind a bicycle. Only the 2009 d’lite ST and 2009 Solo ST trailers with serial numbers that begin with D939 or D948 are included in the recall. The serial number is located in the rear cargo area behind the seat on the lower left rear frame tube. The trailers have “d’lite ST” or “solo ST” screen printed on the cover. Consumers should stop using the trailer immediately and contact Burley to receive a free repair kit or to locate a retailer to assist with the free repair. Visit Burley's ST recall web page for more details.
