Recalls

Almost 21,000 bicycles recalled for a handlebar problem that’s caused riders to fall

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.”
