A recall of the 2008 D640 bikes was issued by Redline Bicycles on December 9, 2010. Its parent company, Seattle Bike Supply, released a safety notice regarding the frames of the D640 2008 models. It’s suggested to immediately stop the use of the affected bicycles because cracking in the headtube welded joints can lead to separation of the headtube from the frame. On the frame’s top tube, you’ll find the model number. There are about 200 units sold from December 2007 to May 2010.
As such, this is hazardous since it can result in injury. So far, there have been eight reports of headtubes detaching from the frame with four incidents of reported minor injuries. To get a free frame replacement, contact your local Redline Bicycle dealer.
