Bicycle Frames Recalled By Norco

Comments Off

Norco Performance Bikes, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is voluntarily recalling Norco Bicycle Frames because they can crack and separate, causing a fall hazard to riders.

To date, the company has received one report of a rider falling from the bicycle and fracturing their collar bone.

The recall, which involves 3,600 bicycle frames, includes the following model year and names: 2007 Team DH, 2008 Team DH, Aline Park, Aline, Atomik, Shore 1,2,3, 2009 Atomik (without gussets). All colors are included in the recall and the model name is printed on a decal on the top tube of each frame/bike.

The agency warns consumers to stop using the recalled bicycle frame immediately and to contact a local Norco dealer for information about a replacement frame.

Consumer Contact: For more information, contact your local Norco dealer or call (800) 663-8916 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday PT or visit the firm’s Web site at www.norco.com or e-mail at recall@norco.com
