Parts of a bicycle’s steering shouldn’t get loose while in motion, which is why Giant Bicycle recalled about 20,800 model year 2021 bikes on Wednesday.
The exact problem, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The adjustable handlebar stem on the bicycles can become loose, posing fall and injury hazards.”
And Giant knows about this happening 86 times “including three reports of riders falling off the bicycle.”
This covers four models: Liv Flourish FS 1, Giant Escape 3 Comfort, Liv Alight 3 Comfort and Giant Cypress DX. If you have any of these models, the company wants you to schedule an inspection and free repair at an authorized Giant Bicycle dealer.
If you have questions, reach out to your local dealer Giant Bicycle at 866-458-2555, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Eastern time, Monday through Friday or by email at Recall@GiantBicycle.com.
