Sachs Bicycle Components is recalling about 16,500 Diamondback mountain bikes to replace their chains, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday. The chains could break, causing a rider to lose control of the bicycle, fall or be injured, the commission said in a statement. The agency said there were about 75 reports of chains breaking, resulting in four injuries, including a broken arm, cuts and bruises.

Here is the tally for two men on the world's longest contiguous bike ride: 6,000 miles behind them, 24 days of pouring rain, six tire blowouts. And 10,000 miles to go. (Add to the tally: one caribou herd sighting, one badly scraped elbow, one 3-inch leg gash.) Boston-area cyclists Spike Ramsden, 31, and Wayne Ross, 30, spent the night at a friend's house in Newport Beach on Wednesday on their "Cycle the Americas for Multiple Sclerosis" fund-raising trip through 14 countries.
