Trek Bicycle Front Quick-Release Mechanism – recall

The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:

TREK

SAFETY RECALL NOTICE

Some Trek bicycles were sold equipped with disc brakes and a front quick-release lever that opens past 180° (fig. 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 (fig. 2). If this happens, the front wheel could separate or come to a sudden stop and the rider could lose control of the bicycle.

 

Trek wants you to be safe. You should always correctly adjust the quick release on your bicycle before you ride. Trek Owner’s Manuals contain detailed instructions for proper quick release installation and removal. If you do not have a Trek Owner’s Manual, see your local Trek retailer.

Additional information on proper quick release adjustment, including videos on quick release installation and removal, is available on Trek’s website: manuals and safety. More videos demonstrating proper quick release adjustment are available on Trek’s YouTube channel: without washers and with washers. We encourage you to review these materials and to consult your local Trek retailer with any questions regarding proper use of your quick release.

This letter contains important information regarding what to do next if you have one of these bicycles.

Your safety is very important to us. Therefore, if desired, Trek will replace the front quick-release mechanism on affected bicycles, free of charge. This includes replacement of the specially designed quick release with washers if it has already been installed on your bike.

AFFECTED MODELS

Any Trek bicycle equipped with disc brakes and a front-quick release lever that can open beyond 180º and contact the disc brake assembly is affected. If you are unsure whether your bicycle has this combination, please take it to your local Trek retailer for a free inspection.
