Trek recalls 998,000 bikes over quick-release lever defect
Trek Bicycle Corporation recently issued a recall of 998,000 bicycles in the U.S. and Canada after two riders were injured and another one was permanently paralyzed, Tech Times stated on April 22.
According to Trek the 2000-2015 model bikes that are affected by the recall have a front tire quick-release lever that may suddenly swing and get caught to the front disc brake. If that happens, the bike can suddenly stop or cause the rider to lose control. Trek is urging owners of recalled bikes to have their bikes inspected for free. Bike retailers will also change the front quick-release lever for free. Customers will also receive a $20 coupon that may be used to purchase any Bontrager product, redeemable until December 31, 2015.
