Green Gear Cycling (trading as Bike Friday)—Bike Friday "Tikit" Custom Bicycle

Identifying features

All the Tikit bicycles with 16 inch wheels are affected by the recall. None of the Bike Friday bicycles with 20 inch wheels are affected.

What are the defects?

The handlebar stem of the Tikit bicycle has a potential weak spot and can develop a crack. As a result, the handlebar stem may eventually separate from the bicycle.

What are the hazards?

If the handlebar stem separates from the bicycle, the cyclist may lose control of the bike and crash.

What should consumers do?

If you have an affected bicycle, cease using it until a new replacement handlebar stem can be fitted. Contact Bike Friday for a replacement stem. The replacement will be sent to the customer with instructions to have a dealer or local bike mechanic replace the handlebar stem. Bike Friday will give the customer or the Bike Friday dealer a credit slip as compensation for the labour.
