Recalls: Schwalbe Ultremo Road Tires, Electra Bicycles

Schwalbe Utremo R Tires: About 5,000 Schwalbe Ultremo R bicycle tires have been recalled because the inner tubes in the tires may burst, causing a risk of falls and injuries to riders.

Schwalbe Ultremo R bicycle tires with “Schwalbe” and “Ultremo R” printed on the sidewall of the tires are being recalled. The tires were sold at bicycle specialty stores nationwide and online at  www.schwalbetires.com from April 2009 through May 2009 for about $75, the CPSC said. The tires were made in Indonesia.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using bicycles with the recalled tires and contact their local bicycle dealer for a free replacement set of tires, the CPSC said.  Link to CPSC recall notice here.

Electra Bicycles: Electra is recalling about 6,400 bicycles, more than doubling the original recall notice from March 2009.  The metal trays and wicker baskets can come loose and cause the rider to fall.  The CPSC has received at least two reports of injuries.  CPSC link is here.
