A Bloomington-based bicycle manufacturer is recalling bikes and fenders after a mounting bracket broke and caused a rider spinal and nerve damage.
Civia Cycles, which is owned by Quality Bicycle Products of Bloomington, is recalling aluminum Civia fenders and all Civia Hyland bicycles equipped with the fenders sold between April 2008 through March 2013.
The recalled fenders have the Civia logo on the front and back, and cost about $60 separately. The fenders came in black, blue, green, olive, red and silver.
The Civia Hyland bicycles outfitted with the fenders came in blue, green, olive and red. They sold for between $1,200 and $4,500.
The agency recommends that consumers stop riding bicycles equipped with the recalled fenders and contact a Civia Cycles dealer to get a $60 credit. Civia Cycles can be contacted for more information about the recall at (877) 311-7686.
About Civia 1,000 products have been recalled in all, according to the recall post on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website. Representatives of the company declined to comment on the recall.
