Recall: Pack up the Packster

Riese & Müller has recalled the Packster 70 Electric Cargo Bike because the steering can fail.

The front pulley's clamping bolts may not be tightened properly and may allow the steering wire to slip.

If the steering wire slips, the rider will lose steering control. This may lead to an accident causing injury or death.

Consumers should stop using the bicycle and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Each bicycle has an article number, serial number and frame number.

See list of identifying numbers for affected bicycles.
