Cracking can occur where the top and down tubes of the bicycle frame join the head tube, below the handlebar stem. These tubes could break apart, potentially causing the rider to lose control and fall. Schwinn is aware of 21 reports of bicycle frames cracking during use. No injuries have been reported. These are 1998-model Pro Stock 3 bicycles sold in both the 20-inch and 24-inch wheel sizes. The 20-inch size bicycles were sold painted black or orange, and the 24-inch size bicycles were sold painted black or green. The 24-inch model also is known as the BMX Cruiser model. These bicycles have the date code "4008" printed on a label located on the front of the head tube, below the handlebar stem. "SCHWINN" and "3 PRO STOCK" are written on the bicycle frame. Authorized Schwinn dealers nationwide sold these bicycles from February 1998 through December 1998 for about $300. Consumers should immediately stop riding these bicycles and take them to an authorized Schwinn dealer to have a new, replacement frame installed free of charge. To locate your local Schwinn dealer or for more information, consumers should call Schwinn at (800) SCHWINN between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MST Monday through Friday. [Source]
