The Irvine, Calif.-based company says the aluminum frames could potentially break, although no incident or injuries have been reported. About 150 bicycles are recalled, the company says it already has located 127 of them.

Made in Taiwan, the F65X and F85X cyclo-cross bikes were sold at specialty bike stores from June to September 2014 for $1,200 to $1,500. The bikes are described in the Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice:

“The 2015 F65X bicycle has a satin black aluminum frame with “Felt” printed in white letters and a diagonal wide white stripe next to a thin white stripe on the frame. The 2015 F85X bicycle has a dark red berry colored aluminum frame with diagonal stripes in black, mint green and yellow on the frame. The Felt logo is printed on the bike frame and the model number is printed on the chainstay of the bicycle frame. “

Company officials say owners should return the bike to the store for an inspection and free replacement.
