In Charleston and all other coastline communities, many mariners pack folding bicycles on their sailboats or yachts for transient purposes once they arrive at the marina. They are easily collapsible and they provide convenient transportation at the ports. One of the most popular folding commuter bikes used by these mariners is Tikit because they can easily fold and go.
Recently, Bike Friday – the bike manufacturer – along with the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall of approximately 3,800 Tikit folding bicycles. They cited defects with the tikit bike’s handlebar stem that may cause the rider to lose control, posing a fall hazard to the consumer.
The company said they have received six reports of breaking handlebar stems, resulting in two reports of injuries including scrapes, bruises and a head laceration that required stitches. For more information on the recall, read the full article.
