Marin Mountain Bikes Inc., of Novato, California, has recalled about 370 Pine Mountain bicycles. An additional 100 are recalled that were sold in Canada. The rigid front forks on these recalled bikes can bend or break during use or while jumping, causing the rider to lose control, posing fall and crash hazards to the user. This recall involves two Marin Mountain bicycle model years and model names: 2016 Pine Mountain 1 and 2017 Pine Mountain bicycles. The bicycles were sold in five frame sizes and in one basic color scheme (silver painted frame with orange painted fork.) The model name “Pine Mountain 1” (2016) or “Pine Mountain” (2017) is printed on the top tube of the frame and the downtube of the frame has a “MARIN” decal. The company has received four reports of bent bicycle forks including one report in the United States and three in other countries. No injuries have been reported.
The bikes were sold at independent bicycle stores nationwide from December 2015 through February 2017 for about $1,000. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mountain bikes and contact the company for instructions on receiving a replacement bicycle fork and scheduling a free repair.
