Chicago Cyclists Be On Alert For Electra Amsterdam Recall

September 14, 2008  ·  By HM&M


Chicago cyclists should be aware of a recent recall involving Electra Amsterdam bicyles. Late last month, the CSPC announced a recall on Electra “Amsterdam” model bicycles. The alert reported there were reports that interior alignment tabs of the bicycle's chainguard can push against the chain, causing the chain to derail, posing serious risk of injury to riders.

Ten thousand of Amsterdam's Classic 3, Original 3, Royal 8, and Sport 3 styles are involved in the recall. The bikes were sold nationwide from January 2007 through June 2008 for between $400 and $850 at authorized Electra dealers. There is potential for product liability litigation relating to this recall.
