Tern Recalls Link Model Bikes
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Urban mobility specialist Tern, today announced a limited voluntary recall of Tern Link model bicycles. The bikes under recall are early production Link OCL frames produced in China in 2011 and early 2012.
The models include the Link D8, Link P9, Link P24h, Link D7i, Link P7i, Link D24 and Link Uno. According to Tern roughly 1,700 bikes are included in the recall.
Incidents of frame failure
“There have been a small number of incidents of frame failure,” said Amanda Uy, Tern Service Manager. “After looking at the broken frames, we decided it would be best to recall specific batches of the frames produced by the factory with the problem.”
Potential recall frames can be identified by the letters “AI” at the beginning of the bike Frame Number stamped underneath the bottom bracket. If a consumer has a Link model under recall with an “AI” Serial Number, they should stop riding and contact their local Tern dealer to confirm if their bike is included in the recall.
