Saris Cycling Group, a Madison manufacturer of bicycle racks and stationary bikes, has announced the voluntary recall of 2,000 stationary bike trainers because they may pose a falling hazard to users. According to a notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a handle pin on the bicycle trainer can loosen during use, causing the machine to become disengaged, and pose a fall hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported. The recalled trainers are a stationary frame that allows bicycles to be converted into stationary bikes. The recalled models include: CycleOps Pro Series Trainer models 9014 (SuperMagneto Pro), 9331 (JetFluid Pro), 9460 (PowerBeam Pro), 9321 (JetFluid Pro Winter Training Kit), and 9322 (SuperMagneto Pro Winter Training Kit) without the secondary locking pin. The units were sold at independent bicycle retailers nationwide from October 2008 through November 2008 for between about $400 and $1,200. Consumers can contact Saris Cycling Group at (800) 783-7257 to receive a replacement trainer.
