Recall Summary

Name of Product: Trek bicycles equipped with front disc brakes

Hazard: An open quick release lever on 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.

Remedy: Replace
Consumers should stop using the bicycles immediately and contact an authorized Trek retailer for free installation of a new quick release on the front wheel. Trek will provide each owner who participates in the recall with a $20 coupon that is redeemable by December 31, 2015 toward any Bontrager merchandise. (The coupon has no cash value.)

Consumer Contact: Trek at (800) 373-4594 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or online at and click on Safety & Recalls at the bottom of the page for more information.
