WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 (UPI) — Sun Rise Bicycle Industrial Co. Ltd of Taiwan and Raleigh America Inc. of Kent, Wash., Tuesday recalled 2,800 bicycles because the frames can break, resulting in loss of control.

Raleigh America said it has received 13 reports of the bicycle frames breaking, including an incident where a rider broke a heel.

The recall involves the 2002 Diamondback X-10 and X-20 Y-frame mountain bikes with full-suspension.

The units were sold nationwide by authorized dealers between September 2001 and October 2002 for $550 (X-10) and $770 (X-20).

Consumers are advised to stop using the bicycles and return them for a free replacement frame. For more information, call 888-805-6396 for more information or visit the company's Web site, diamondback.com.
