The CSPC announced a recall on Electra “Amsterdam” model bicycles.  The interior alignment tabs of the bicycle’s chainguard can push against the chain, causing the chain to derail.  This can pose a serious risk of injury to riders.  Amsterdam model bicycles in the Classic 3, Original 3, Royal 8, and Sport 3 styles are involved in the recall.  The bikes were sold nationwide from January 2007 through June 2008 for between $400 and $850 at authorized Electra dealers.  This is the second Electra bike recall.  The total number of bikes involved in both recalls tops 10,000.  Electra has received a report of injuries related to this defect.
