BikeE Recalls 1,400 Recumbents
BikeE Recalls 1,400 RecumbentsIn Cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commision BikeE is voluntarily recalling all 2000 and 2001 BikeE FX and 2001 BikeE RX Full Suspension model bikes.

BikeE has encountered two situations in which the pressed fit pins secured by set-screws holding the 2-bar linkage of the frontsuspension fork became loose and fell out. In both cases the riders sustained minor injuries. If these pins were to come out while you were riding you could lose control of your BikeE which could cause serious injury.

They ask that you immediately stop riding and bring your BikeE with front suspension to your Authorized BikeE retailer for a no-charge recall service.

The fix is very simple and fast. Each linkage pin with a set-screw needs to be replaced with a linkage pin with a cir-clip. If you have a BikeE that may be affected by this recall, take your bike to your BikeE retailer for inspection. If your BikeE is affected, your dealer will install a new linkage kit that will include locking c-clips to insure your safety.
