REI Recalls Bikes
Outdoor equipment seller REI has recalled certain bicycles sold through its stores. Novara Fusion Bicycles were sold at REI in 2009 and 2010. The affected models were called “Step Through” and “Fusion”. The steerer tube – the part of the bike that attaches the fork and wheel to the handlebars – can unexpectedly separate causing the bike to collapse and injury the rider. Owners of these bikes should stop using them immediately and return them to REI where a replacement fork will be installed.
