RECALL: Cannondale Road Bicycles

The CPSC and Cannondale bicycles have issued a voluntary recall of Cannondale's 2009 Six 5, Six 6, Six Carbon 5 and Six Carbon 6 Bicycles.
About 1,300 bikes were sold at authorized Cannondale dealers nationwide from October 2008 through February 2009 for between $1,500 and $2,100.


The bicycles fail to meet the federal safety standard for bicycles. Spoke protector discs, required on bicycles to prevent the bicycle chain from interfering or suddenly stopping the wheel, are missing from these bicycles. This poses a fall hazard to the rider. There have been no reported injuries.


The following Cannondale bicycles are included in the recall. “Six” is printed on the bicycle's top tube and “Cannondale” is printed on the down tube.


Bicycle Name (2009 Models): Model Number
Six 5 Compact: 9RCT5C
Six 5: 9RCT5D
Six 5 Compact: 9RCT5C
Six 6: 9RCT6D
Six 6 Triple: 9RCT6T
Six Carbon 5: 9RSX5D
Six Carbon 5: Compact 9RSX5C
