This Huffy Bike Will Injure You

If you own this Huffy bike, you should be aware that at any moment “the bicycle crank can unexpectedly come off, causing the rider to lose control, fall and suffer serious injuries.”

Yeah, we don’t want that to happen either. That’s why you should stop using the recalled bicycles immediately and contact Huffy for instructions on tightening the crank.

This recall affects:

2007 model year, multi-speed bicycles with 26-inch, 24-inch or 20-inch wheels.
