Trek Bicycle Recall
The United States Consumer Products Safety Commission is warning that consumers should immediately stop using Trek bicycles equipped with front disc brakes because the bicycle’s front wheel hub can come into contact with the front disc brake assembly, causing the front wheel to come to a sudden stop or separate from the bicycle, posing a risk of injury to the rider. The recall involves all models of Trek bicycles from model years 2000 through 2015 equipped with front disc brakes and a black or silver quick release lever on the front wheel hub that opens far enough to contact the disc brake.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Trek has reported three incident involving injuries from this product. One incident resulted in quadriplegia. The bicycles at issue were manufactured in Taiwan and China and imported by Trek Bicycle Corporation of Waterloo, Wis.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission recommend that consumers stop using the affected bicycles and contact an authorized Trek retailer for free installation of a new quick release on the front wheel.
