The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Wisconsin-based Saris Cycling Group, has issued a voluntary recall of about 2,000 Saris stationary bicycle trainers.
The issue? A handle pin on the bicycle trainer can loosen during use, causing the machine to become disengaged, and pose a fall hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled trainers are a stationary frame that allows bicycles to be converted into stationary bicycles. The recalled models include: CycleOps Pro Series Trainer models 9014 (SuperMagneto Pro), 9331 (JetFluid Pro), 9460 (PowerBeam Pro), 9321 (JetFluid Pro Winter Training Kit), and 9322 (SuperMagneto Pro Winter Training Kit) without the secondary locking pin. The model number and style names are printed on the left side of the main frame of the trainer.
These American-made trainers were sold at independent bicycle retailers from October 2008 through November 2008 for between about US$400 and $1,200.
Consumers with the recalled bicycle trainers should immediately stop using the product and contact Saris Cycling Group Saris Cycling Group at (800) 783-7257 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. (EST) Monday through Friday to receive a replacement trainer. Consumers can also send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a customer outside the U.S., visit www.cyclops.com.
