Following numerous reports of serious injuries, Surly Bikes has issued a recall of several lines of bike racks, including: Surly 8-Pack Racks, Surly 24-Pack front bicycle racks, and Pack Rat Bicycles equipped with these racks. According to the recall, these bike racks “can loosen and contact the front wheel, posing crash and injury hazards to the rider.” As of December 6, 2019, Surly Bikes had received at least 15 reports of rack failures and 10 reports of injuries. While three of these injury reports involved minor sprains and lacerations, the other seven reports were far more serious and included a report of a fractured vertebra.
