WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN) — Cannondale is working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall about 500 Slice time trial bikes because the "brake plate" can loosen. The company has received one report of the loosening and no reports of injuries.
The affected models are 2013 model year Slice RS bikes including the Black Edition, Ultegra and Ultegra Di2 bicycles and framesets. The Black Edition bikes come in black and the word "Cannondale" is in green on the top tube. The Ultegra and Ultegra Di2 are white with red trim and "Cannondale" is in black on the downtube.
The China-made bikes were sold at Cannondale retailers nationwide between October 2012 and June 2013 for $5,500 to $11,000 for the bike and $4,500 for the frameset.
