REI Recalls 160 Novara Fusion Bikes

Recreational Equipment Inc, (REI) is recalling about 160 of its Novara Fusion bicycles because the alloy steerer tube could separate from the fork causing the rider to lose control and posing a fall hazard to consumers.

The retailer has received one report of a steerer tube detaching. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Novara Fusion bicycles with serial numbers U95Y07321, U96Y28393, or in the sequential range of the last four digits U96Y28876 through U96Y29128. Serial numbers are located on the underside of the bike. The espresso-colored bicycles were sold in two styles, the Step Through and the Fusion. The Step Through was sold in extra small/small, while the Fusion was available in medium, large, and extra large.

Made in Taiwan, the bikes were sold nationwide from November 2009 to November 2010 for between $600 and $900.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports at http://www.safetyproducts.gov that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.
