VanMoof USA Inc, of Brooklyn, New York, has recalled about 375 VanMoof B and S series bicycles, The front fender bolts do not break when an object gets stuck between the front tire and the front fender/mud guard, posing fall and impact hazards. This recall involves VanMoof B-Series and S-Series commuter-style bicycles manufactured between 2014 and 2016. All S series bikes have a grey anodized frame and all B series bikes have a white powder coated frame. There are – for both Series 3 frame types – a straight frame, a straight frame with an integrated chain lock, and a dropdown frame. B-Series and S-Series serial numbers are stamped on the bottom bracket of the bicycle between the pedals on the bottom of the bicycle. The company has received two reports of riders injured when road objects created an obstruction between the bike fender and the front wheel. In both instances, the fender remained intact, because the stainless steel fender bolts did not break off. One instance resulted in bruises, scratches and a broken arm. In the second instance, the rider suffered a concussion.
The bicycles were sold at Aika Trading, Calhoun Cycle, Orange Pedal, The Garage OTR, Seattle E-bike and other bicycle stores nationwide and online from January 2014 through December 2016 for about $800. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact VanMoof to receive free replacement nylon bolts for the front fender and installation instructions. The repair can be completed by the consumer without assistance.
