Seattle Bike Supply of Kent, WA has voluntarily recalled its 2010 Redline Conquest Cyclocross bicycles and framesets due to faulty forks, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported.
After receiving five repots of cracks near the fork’s crown, the company concluded that the fork’s legs can separate from the fork crown and cause the rider to lose control, posing a fall hazard.
This recall involves all 2010 Redline Conquest Cyclocross bicycles and framesets. The bicycles and framesets were sold in yellow and black, and have aluminum frames and aluminum forks with aluminum steering tubes. “Redline” is printed on the bicycle frame. The bicycles are equipped with a 700C wheel and frame sizes ranging from 44cm to 60 cm.
About 330 of the units were sold at bicycle specialty stores nationwide between July 2009 and May 2010 for about $1,400 for the bicyle and $400 for the frameset. The units were manufactured in Taiwan.
Consumers were advised to immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and framesets and contact their local Redline bicycle dealer to receive a free fork replacement
