The company has received 12 reports of front triangles cracking. No injuries were reported.
The recall involves about 1,530 bicycles sold in the U.S. and 1,470 bicycles sold in Canada.
The recalled bicycles include the Rocky Mountain model-year 2018-2020 Instinct, Instinct BC and Pipeline trail bikes. They have serial numbers starting with PRK17, PRK18 and PRK19-XXXXX.
