Bicycle brakes are being recalled by the La Canada, California-based eecycleworks LLC. The recall is due to a potential crack in the bridge of the brake that can lead to a fall. So far, two reports of an incident have been filed, although neither of those resulted in injuries more serious than scrapes and bruises. The models being recalled were sold between September 2oo8 and March 2011. The company is asking those who own one of these bikes to call and get free replacement parts.

Baja Motorsports is voluntarily recalling a series of dirt bikes due to fire hazards caused by a possible fuel tank leakage.
The DR50 and DR70 Baja dirt bikes that this recall concerns were made in China and were sold at Pep Boys and other motorsport stores. 4,300 units fall under the purview of this recall. Each affected dirt bike will have a VIN that begins with L98, a B as its tenth digit, and a yellow dot or line near the VIN. They retailed from $450 to $650 and were available for purchase between December 2010 and January of this year.
This is actually a reissue of a recall that was announced last month. Baja felt the need to announce the recall once again because they received ten reports of an incident after the initial recall announcement was made. Of those ten reports, two people suffered a burn injury, adding up to a total of 16 leaked fuel incidents.
These bikes should stop being used at once. Baja Motorsports is offering free repairs for them, and consumers are being advised to contact them at once.
