Commencal of Golden, Colo., is recalling about 925 Commencal Ramones 14-inch bicycles.

Federal regulations require bikes with seat heights that measure at or below 25 inches to have foot brakes. These bicycles are equipped only with hand brakes and can pose a crash hazard or a risk of injury to young children who might not be able to stop the bicycles using hand brakes only.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves the Commencal Ramones 14-inch children’s bicycles that have hand brakes but not foot brakes. The bikes were sold in multiple colors, with the model year printed on the front fork leg stickers. A list of the recalled bicycles may be found here.

The bikes, manufactured in Thailand, were sold online at www.commencalusa.com from December 2014, through March 2021, for between $230 and $320.

What to do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled bikes away from children, stop using them, and contact the firm for a free repair kit.

Consumers may contact Commencal toll-free at (844) 884-9085 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (MT) Monday through Friday or online for more information.
