Civia Recalls Bicycles, Fenders following Report of Spinal Injury
Civia is recalling about 1,000 bicycles and aluminum fenders after a rider sustained a spinal injury.
The fender mounting bracket can break or bend, which lead to at least one rider falling and sustaining nerve damage.
This recall includes all Civia aluminum fenders sold separately as aftermarket sets and all Civia Hyland bicycles sold with the fenders as original equipment. They were sold at independent bicycle retailers nationwide and online from April 2008 through March 2013 for about $60 per Civia fender set and between $1,200 and $4,500 for Civia Hyland bicycles.
Consumers should immediately stop riding bicycles with the recalled fenders and contact an authorized Civia Cycles dealer to receive a $60 credit.
