Bikes Recalled After Wheel Problems

May 9, 2002 | AP

A Canadian bicycle company is recalling 660 mountain bikes because the mechanism that holds the rear wheel in place can fail, causing the wheel to pop off.

Rocky Mountain Bicycles of Delta, British Columbia, has received one report of a rear wheel coming unattached, causing a rider to crash, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday. The rider suffered minor scrapes.

The recall involves Slayer and Edge full-suspension, mountain bicycles. The Slayer model is black metallic with red decals on the top tube and downtube that read "Slayer" and "Rocky Mountain."

The Edge model is royal blue with yellow decals on the top tube and downtube that read "Edge" and "Rocky Mountain."

Made in Canada is printed on both bicycle models.

Bicycle shops nationwide sold the bikes for about $2,000. Consumers should stop riding the bicycles and return them to the store of purchase for a free repair.
