Cannondale Bicycle Corp. is recalling about 2,900 bicycles because their front gears could break, presenting a fall hazard to the user, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The company has learned of two incidents in which cranksets – the gears at the front of the bicycle chain – broke, causing one minor injury.
The bicycles were sold at authorized dealers from June 2006 through May 2007 for between $1,800 and $5,700 each, and $475 for each crankset.
Consumers should check the Cannondale website to see if their bicycle is included in the recall. Dealers will inspect the bicycles to establish if a replacement needs to be issued.
