Seattle Bike Supply of Kent, Washington has issued a voluntary recall of their Redline D640 Bicycles following eight reports of head tubes separating from the frame, including four reports of minor scrapes and cuts. Consumers are advised to stop using the bicycles immediately unless otherwise instructed.
This recall involves all approximately two hundred 2008 Redline D640 bicycles. The bicycles were sold in black and have aluminum frames. “REDLINE” is written down the frame’s tube. The model number is written on the frame’s top tube. Be advised that the head tube can separate from the frame, causing the rider to lose control and fall. This poses a risk of serious injury.
The bicycle were manufactured in China and sold in specialty stores nationwide from December 2007 to May 2010 for about $900. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact a local Redline bicycle dealer to receive a free frame replacement.
