The Swedish homeware giant has been informed by a component supplier of safety issues with the bicycle's drive belt. It has been found that the belt can suddenly snap, which in turn can lead to falls.

IKEA say that they have received 11 reports of such incidents, with two minor injuries consisting of bruises and scratches.
