Diamond Backs Recalls XSL Mountain Bikes
 
11/20/2001
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Raleigh America Inc., of Kent, Wash., is voluntarily recalling about 500 bicycles. The bottom bracket spindle inside the crankset of the bicycle can break, causing the rider to lose control and crash.

Raleigh America has received five reports of bottom bracket spindles breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled bicycles are the 2001 Diamondback XSL-Race and XSL- Pro Mountain models. The XSL-Race model is white with red and black decals. The XSL-Pro model is yellow with white decals.

Authorized Diamondback dealers sold the bicycles nationwide from January 2001 through August 2001 for between $1,400 and $1,900.

Consumers should immediately stop riding these bicycles and contact the authorized Diamondback dealer where the bicycle was purchased to arrange for a free repair. For more information, consumers can contact Raleigh America at (800) 222-5527 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
