Weak Bicycle Frames Cause GIANT Recall of High End Bikes

It is not often that one sees the Federal Government recall of high end, expensive bicycles. However, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of 370 bicycles due to an unsteady frame. According to Giant Bicycle Inc., the 2011 model Giant Anthem bicycles can potentially crack at the seat post, posing a fall risk for riders. There have been no reports of injuries as of yet, the company said.
According to the PR Newswire. Giant Bicycle dealers sold these bikes to athletes nationwide during August 2010 for between $2,200 and $3,500. If you or someone you know has one of these bikes, contact the PCSC at once and make sure not to ride this unsafe sports product.
