Cannondale Bicycle Corp. said Tuesday it is recalling about 1,500 bicycles because of a faulty part that can cause riders to lose control and crash. The forks in the recalled bikes can lose alignment and cause the front wheel to turn unexpectedly, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a release. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall involves model year 2008 Cannondale Adventure 2, Adventure 3, Adventure 2 Feminine and Adventure 3 Feminine bicycles. Model names are printed on the bicycle's frame.

The bicycles have a suspension fork with the words "cannondale AT35 adventure trail" printed on them. The forks are from JD Components of Taiwan. Bicycles equipped with the Rock Shox i-ride fork are not included in the recall, according to the press release.

The recalled bikes were sold at Cannondale dealers between February and April and cost between $600 and $800.

Consumers should stop riding the bikes immediately and call their dealer for a free repair, the release said.
