Advanced Sports is recalling approximately 650 Fuji bicycles that were sold at Fuji Bicycle and Authorized Oval Concept dealers from April 2016 through October 2016 for between $2000 to $8000.

The affected bicycles are being recalled due to the possibility that the rear wheel freehub can slip while pedaling, thereby posing a fall hazard to the rider.

This recall involves Advanced Sports International's 2017 Fuji bicycles with Oval Concepts Rear Wheels. The aluminum or carbon fiber bicycles come in a variety of colors. The bicycle model name is printed on the frame of the bicycle. The wheel model number is printed on the rim of the wheel. The hub model number is printed on the drive-side hub flange.
