Pacific Cycle Recalls Children’s Trailer Bicycles

by Warren T

Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation Pacific Cycle Inc., of Madison, Wis., announced a voluntary recall of the InStep “Pathfinder,” Schwinn “Run About,” and Mongoose “Alley Cat” Trailer Bicycles yesterday. About 7,000 of the units, manufactured in China, use a coupler connecting the children’s trailer bike to the adult’s bicycle which has welds that can fail, posing a fall hazard to children.

Contact Pacific Cycle toll-free at (877) 564-2261 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit www.instep.net, www.schwinnbikes.com, or www.mongoose.com.

Tip of the helmet to Gene at Biking Bis for pointing this one out.
