The recalled front racks on the bicycles can detach and cause the bicycle’s front wheel to abruptly stop, posing a fall hazard.
This recall involves the Front Rack with a Bamboo Tray for Cycling Sports Group Cannondale Treadwell bicycles. The rack has a black metal frame and a bamboo tray. “ISO11243:2016 YUENI MAX 10KG” is printed on the bamboo tray.
Consumers should immediately stop riding the bicycle until the front rack is removed, and contact their local authorized Cannondale dealer or Cycling Sports Group to arrange for a free repair.
Cycling Sports Group has received reports of two incidents of the tray detaching and contacting the bicycle wheel, one resulting in a fall involving minor cuts and bruises, and the other involving both bruising and a concussion.
Authorized Cannondale dealers nationwide from April 2019 through June 2020 for between $950 to $2,750 for the bicycles sold with the front racks, and $100 for the racks sold separately. The front racks were included as original equipment on some bicycles; on other bicycles, the front racks were sold separately as ad-on equipment.
