Norco bicycle frames recalled over fall hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Norco bicycle frames because they can crack and separate, causing a rider to fall from the bicycle and suffer injuries.

The recalled bicycle frames include the following model year and model names: 2007 Team DH, 2008 Team DH, Aline Park, Aline, Atomik, Shore 1,2,3, 2009 Atomik (without gussets). All colours are included in the recall and the model name is printed on a decal on the top tube of each frame/bike.

About 3,600 of the frames were sold in the United States from September 2006 through February 2009 for between $2,000 and $7,000 US each.

All owners should immediately stop using the bicycle frame and contact a local Norco dealer or Norco directly for information regarding receiving a possible replacement frame.
