Bikes recalled because of faulty prongs holding front wheel

About 1,200 Raleigh bicycles are being recalled because the forks can break and cause riders to lose control, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

Made in China and imported by Washington-based Raleigh America Inc., the bikes subject to the recall are 2007 Raleigh Cadent 1.0, Cadent 2.0 and Cadent Carbon models with Carbonage carbon forks. “Raleigh” is printed on the down tube of the bicycle and the model name is printed on the top tube.

The bikes were sold at Raleigh America dealers nationwide from January 2007 through June 2007 for between $660 US and $1,930 US.

Consumers should stop using the recalled bicycles immediately and return them to the place of purchase. Raleigh bicycle dealers will replace the forks at no charge.
