Urgent Product Recall Information For Cyclists, Bicycle Enthusiasts, And More

Urgent Product Recall Information For Cyclists, Bicycle Enthusiasts, And MoreRiding a bike has evolved over the years. What was once a childhood past time, has become one of the most used forms of transportation and exercise, as well as, a tool to blow off steam. There are vast numbers of cars, trucks, bicycles, motorcycles, and multiple other modes of transportation on our roads, that it is notable to mention that, we should all share the roadways, and be mindful of others around us. Of course, that is an entirely different discussion, and this post is for owners, or just riders of bikes, to remain safe and keep enjoying what they love doing.

Hopping on your cycle and heading to your favorite trail seems harmless enough, and it is likely you have not even thought about your mode of transportation causing you harm. Aside from a flat tire, chain coming off, or another minor problem, an actual bike failure hurting us, stays at the very back of our mind. It is out of sight and out of mind, but these recalls can pose a threat to you and need to be looked into accordingly.

The Handlebars Can Crack

Just imagine, you are riding along down your preferred path, which also happens to be on a road that has a lot of traffic, and your handlebars crack, causing you to swerve into another lane. You can see where this is headed, so we will not elaborate any further with the scenario. To make a long story short, you can become injured, or worst, so be safe out there.

Cycling Sports Group Inc., of Wilton, Conn., is issuing a recall on about 1,000, GT mountain bicycles. They were sold at bicycle stores nationwide, from June 2016 to June 2017, for anywhere between $440 to $800. The following models are affected…

  • Karakoram Sport
  • Karakoram Comp
  • Aggressor Sport
  • Aggressor Comp and Aggressor Expert

They were sold in various shades, colors and finishes, including, black, blue, gunmetal gray, and neon yellow. However, only bikes containing a solid black GT logo on the downtube, and with a stem marked “Ø31.8 9-10N.M” are involved in the recall. There are about 1,000 potentially affected units, so check to make sure that you do not own one, to avoid injuries from the handlebars cracking.

There have been no reports issued to the company about injuries, as of yet, but they are taking proper precautions to get them off of the streets. Contact the Cycling Sports Group customer service department at 800-726-2453 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, or an authorized GT dealer, for a free repair. More information can also be found on the company’s webpage, as well as, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s web page.
