Civia Bicycles and Aftermarket Fenders Recalled
Civia Cycles has recalled about 1,000 aluminum fenders and Civia Hyland bicycles originally equipped with the fenders.
About the Bicycle and Fender Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), defective fenders sold aftermarket and with the Hyland Bicycles are being recalled by Civia Cycles.
The recall is the direct result of a consumer reported injury in which the consumer suffered a spinal injury and nerve damage due to a bracket breaking. A fall hazard can result from the breaking or bending of the fender mounting bracket.
Civia is requesting that customers immediately stop riding bikes equipped with the defective fenders and contact an authorized Civia cycle dealer to receive a refund credit of $60.
