Salsa Cycles, a wholly-owned brand of Quality Bicycle Products Inc., of Bloomington, Minn., has recalled about 1,100 Salsa Minimalist bicycle racks. The L-shaped mounting straps used to attach the bicycle rack to the front of the bicycle can break and cause the rack to fall while the bicycle is in use, posing a fall hazard to the rider. Salsa Cycles has received two reports of bicycle racks breaking at the mounting straps, resulting in minor injuries from falls. This recall involves all Salsa Minimalist bicycle racks sold after January 2011. The racks are made of tubular aluminum with a black or silver finish, and can be installed on either the front or rear of a bicycle.
The recalled bicycle racks have steel mounting brackets, identified as straps, with a single hole in the center used to mount the strap to the bicycle fork. “Salsa” is printed on the side of the bicycle rack. They were sold by bicycle retail stores nationwide and by Internet retailers from January 2011 through March 2012 for about $80. Consumers should immediately remove the recalled bicycle racks and contact an authorized Salsa dealer for inspection, re-mounting or refund.
