Tikit Folding Bicycles have been recalled by Green Gear Cycling Inc., dba Bike Friday, of Eugene, Ore. The Tikit bike’s handlebar stem can break and cause the rider to lose control, posing a fall hazard to the consumer. This recall involves all models of tikit brand folding bicycles.

The company has received six reports of breaking handlebar stems, resulting in two reports of injuries including scrapes, bruises and a head laceration that required stitches. Consumers should immediately stop riding the bicycle and contact Bike Friday to schedule a free repair. The bikes were sold by Bike Friday direct and dealers nationwide from January 2007 through September 2012 for between $900 and $5,000.
