(KGTV) -- Nearly 2,000 bicycles are being recalled due to a defect that could cause injury, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall is affecting Salsa Warbird and Vaya bicycles. The commission says the bicycle's fork legs can break, posing an injury hazard.

All 2019 Salsa Warbird Carbon series bicycles and framesets, including Ultegra Di2, Force 1, 105, Apex 1, and Tiagra bicycles and all 2019 Salsa Vaya 105 bicycles and framesets are involved in the recall.

The bikes were sold at specialty bicycle retailers nationwide from September 2018 through November 2018.

The Salsa Warbird sold between $2,000 and $5,400 and the Vaya sold between $1,000 and $2,000.

The commission says consumers should stop using the bicycles and return them to the retailer where they were purchased for free installation of the replacement fork.
