Salsa Cycles Bike Rack Recall

recalled salsa cycles minmalist bike rackSalsa Cycles has recalled their Salsa Minimalist bicycle racks. The L-shaped mounting straps used to attach the bicycle rack to the front of the bicycle (the racks can also be rear mounted) can break and cause the rack to fall while the bicycle is in use, posing a fall hazard to the rider. This recall involves all Salsa Minimalist bicycle racks sold after January 2011. The racks are made of tubular aluminum with a black or silver finish, and can be installed on either the front or rear of a bicycle. The recalled bicycle racks have steel mounting brackets, identified as straps, with a single hole in the center used to mount the strap to the bicycle fork. "Salsa" is printed on the side of the bicycle rack.
