CPSC, Cannondale Corp. Announce Recall of Gemini Bicycles
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Cannondale Corp., of Bethel, Conn., is voluntarily
recalling about 800 Gemini bicycles with medium and large frames. The
frames on some of these bicycles have been improperly manufactured,
causing too much of the thickest portion of the downtube to be removed.
This could cause the frame to break during use, resulting in falls and
serious injury to riders.
Cannondale has received three reports of frames breaking. One
minor injury was reported.
The recall involves the following bicycle models with medium and
|2002 Gemini 1000||2003 Gemini 2000
|2002 Gemini 2000||2003 Gemini 1000
|2003 Gemini 900
The bicycles have "Cannondale" written on the downtube, and
"Gemini" and the model number are written on the top tube. The bicycles
were sold in various colors.
Authorized Cannondale retailers nationwide sold these bicycles
from December 2001 through September 2002 for between $2,100 and $3,800.
Consumers should stop riding these bicycles immediately and
contact their local Cannondale retailer for a free inspection of their
bicycle frame. Consumers with improperly manufactured frames will have a
free replacement frame installed. For more information, consumers can
contact Cannondale at (800) BIKEUSA or visit the company's web site at
www.cannondale.com to find a local retailer.
