PHILADELPHIA (BRAIN) — Advanced Sports International is recalling about 650 road bikes because the bikes’ freehubs can slip while the rider is pedaling. The company is replacing the freehub bodies on the bikes.

Consumers are being told to stop riding the bikes and to contact ASI to receive a replacement freehub body.
