The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Saris Cycling Group of Madison, Wis., are voluntarily recalling stationary bicycle trainers because a handle pin on the trainer can come loose and cause the machine to become disengaged.
The problem could pose a fall hazard.
No injuries have been reported.
The recalled trainers have a stationary frame that allows bicycles to be converted into stationary bicycles.
The recalled models include: CycleOps Pro Series Trainer models 9014 (SuperMagneto Pro), 9331 (JetFluid Pro), 9460 (PowerBeam Pro), 9321 (JetFluid Pro Winter Training Kit), and 9322 (SuperMagneto Pro Winter Training Kit) without the secondary locking pin. The model number and style names are printed on the left side of the main frame of the trainer.
About 2,000 units, manufactured in the U.S. were sold at independent bicycle retailers across the U.S. from October through November 2008 for between about $400 and $1,200 US.
The commission urges consumers with the recalled bicycle trainers to stop using the product and contact Saris Cycling Group to receive a replacement trainer. Saris Cycling Group can be reached at 1-800-783-7257 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
