Trek Bicycles Recall

May 13, 2015

Trek Bicycles has issued a product recall on certain models of Trek Bicycles manufactured from the year 2000 to 2015. The recall concerns only those models sold equipped with disc brakes and a front quick release lever that opens past 1800(Figure 1).

If the quick release is improperly adjusted or left open on a bicycle which also has a front disc brake, the quick release lever can become caught in the front disc brake assembly (Figure 2). If this happens, the front wheel could separate or come to a sudden stop posing a fall hazard.

What to do:

Bring your bicycle back to your Trek retailer who will replace the quick release. If you are unsure whether your bicycle has this combination your local retailer will carry out a free inspection.
