Bike Recalls: REI, Felt, & Rocky Mountain

Felt F75There have been a number of bicycle recalls recently. These include hybrid bikes from REI (Novara), road racing bikes from Felt, and road racing bikes from Rocky Mountain. The Felt and Rocky Mountain road bike models have carbon fiber front forks manufactured by ADK Technolgy Limited of China that have broken in several instances. The Novara bikes, imported by REI from Taiwan, have had the "steerer tube detach." One report of this problem prompted the REI recall.
