According to a recall announcement published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Commencal Ramones 14-inch bicycles have been recalled due to a defect that can cause accidents with injuries. Federal regulations mandate that all bikes that have seat heights at or below 25 inches tall have foot brakes. The affected bicycles only have hand brakes, and this could cause crashes and cause injury to small children who may not be able to use the handbrakes to stop the bicycle.
The recall was announced on March 24, 2022, and affected nearly 1,000 bicycles. If you have one of the recalled bicycles, contact the company through its website, commencalusa.com, and click on the recall link.
