Safety Commission Orders Recall of Electra Bicycles and Schwalbe Tires

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced recalls of Schwalbe brand bicycle tires and Electra bicycles. The Commission recommended that consumers immediately stop using Schwalbe Ultremo R Bicycle Tires because tire layers could separate causing the inner tube to rupture. The tires were sold at bike stores and online between April and May 2009 for about $75. The Commission also recommended that consumers stop riding 2009 Electra bicycles with front trays or baskets. The company that makes these bikes has received fifteen reports of the front tray or basket coming loose and contacting the front tire during use, creating a fall hazard.
