2010-2012 Bad Boy and Bad Girl Bicycle Recall

This recall is a result of some reports of affected bicycles developing fatigue cracks where the axle meets the fork leg. Fatigue cracks grow with use and can result in a broken axle. There is a risk that the axle may separate from the fork leg, with risk of an accident or injury.

Please do not ride your bicycle until the fork is inspected or replaced. Bicycles subject to recall can be confirmed by looking at the date code on the bottom of the fork leg.
