CPSC, Dynacraft Industries Inc. Announce Recall of Bicycles Sold at Target
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Dynacraft Industries Inc., of San Rafael, Calif., is
voluntarily recalling about 4,700 Vertical XL2 mountain bicycles. The
forks on these bicycles can break apart, causing riders to lose control,
fall and suffer serious injury.
Dynacraft has received six reports of the forks breaking apart on
these bicycles resulting in injuries that include abrasions, cuts,
bruises and broken teeth.
The recall includes only 24-inch Vertical XL2 mountain bicycles,
with model number 8524-21. A label on the frame near the crank housing
identifies the model number. The bicycles are red. "Vertical" is written
on the top tube, and "XL2" is written on the down tube.
Target stores nationwide sold these mountain bikes from August
1999 through March 2000 for about $130.
Consumers should stop using these bicycles immediately and contact
Dynacraft Industries for information on receiving a free replacement
fork and free installation. For more information, contact Dynacraft at
(800) 288-1560 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or
