Cannondale has issued a recall of its commuter bicycles because they may pose a fall hazard to riders.

Approximately 3,100 bicycles are affected, plus an additional 400 sold in Canada.

This recall involves 2010-2012 Cannondale Bad Boy and Bad Girl commuter bicycles. Only bicycles with date codes beginning with P, Q, and RB through RL are included in this recall. The date code is located on the bottom of the bicycle fork. The frame is matte black. A Cannondale decal can be found on the downtube. The bicycles were sold at authorized Cannondale dealers nationwide from June 2010 through December 2014 for between $1,000 and $1,800.

The company has received 30 reports of the bicycle's fork axle cracking, including an injury report of a fall that resulted in a concussion and bruising.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and take them to the nearest authorized Cannondale dealer for a free repair. Cannondale dealers will replace the fork free of charge.

For more information, consumers may contact Cannondale at (800) 726-2453.
