CPSC, Salsa Cycles Announce Recall of Bicycle Rims

WASHINGTON, D.C.– In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Salsa Cycles, of Bloomington, Minn., is voluntarily recalling about 500 disc-brake specific bicycle rims. The rims can unexpectedly fail during normal use, posing the risk of falls and serious injury to riders.

Salsa Cycles has received six reports of rims failing during use; though, no injuries have been reported.

The recalled rims are the Salsa Alto models, which have a black anodized finish and are labeled “Salsa” and “Salsa Alto” in yellow, red and white. The rims, which are used on mountain bikes that have disc brakes, were sold individually or built up into wheels with Shimano Deore or Deore XT hubs.

Independent bicycle dealers sold these rims from January 2001 through August 2001 for $50 (individually) or between $100 and $150 (in built up wheels).

Consumers with the recalled rims should stop using them immediately and return them to the store were purchased, for a full refund or free replacement. Consumer also can call Salsa Cycles toll-free at (877) 887-2572 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
