Delta Cycle Corp., in cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall of about 3,500 Picasso Two-Bike Folding Racks. Based on the recall, the bike rack does not have sufficient hardware to support its weight on the wall, which can cause the bike rack to unexpectedly fall. There has been one report of a bike rack falling, but injuries have been reported.
The racks were sold at LL Bean, Bike Nashbar and independent bike shops nationwide from January 2002 through September 2005. The racks were priced roughly $40 retail.
The recall involves Picasso bike racks with a collapsible shelf. The bike rack can be mounted on the wall and has slots to support two bicycles. The metal rack has the Delta logo and name printed on the front of the rack. Consumers have been advised to contact Delta Cycle directly to receive additional hardware and installation instructions.
