Announce Bicycle Recall WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Performance Inc. of Chapel Hill, N.C., is voluntarily recalling about 5,000 bicycles with defective seat posts manufactured by Polygon Industries Corp. of Taiwan, R.O.C. The seat posts have a clamp bolt under them, which can break or fracture. Riders could be seriously injured by losing control of a bicycle with a broken seat post. Performance has received five reports of the seat posts failing, resulting in minor injuries, including cuts and bruises. Performance bicycles, models X203, X204, M603, M604, M704, and M705, are equipped with a defective PM-215 seat post. Performance bicycle stores and the Performance mail order catalog sold the bicycles nationwide from March 1993 through April 1996 for between $300 and $500, depending on the model. Consumers should stop using the bicycles immediately and call Performance's Technical Department at (800) 553-8324 or return the bicycles to the nearest Performance Bicycle Shop, where the seat post clamp bolt will be replaced free-of-charge.
