May is National Bike Month and bicyclists out there loving the cruiser style bikes may be effected by the Felt Bicycles May 1, 2015 recall of their beach cruiser, Felt Deep Six and El Guapo, bikes. These bikes are one-speed and have coaster brakes with Felt or the model names on the bike frames. The defect with these cool cruisers involves the fact that crashes can occur when the brakes fail.
