BikeOz—Assorted Bicycle Brands - Quick Release Cam Levers with a Front Disc Brake
What are the defects?
When improperly used or left open after wheel removal or adjustment, the quick release lever may open more than 180° and become caught in the disc brake assembly. If the front quick-release cam lever has a clearance of less than 6 millimetres while riding it may come in contact with the front disc brake rotor.
What are the hazards?
If the defect occurs, it may result in separation or sudden stoppage of the front wheel. This may cause the rider to lose control of the bicycle posing a serious fall hazard.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should perform the #2 Pencil Test (a video on how to perform the #2 Pencil Test is on www.quickreleaserecall.com) to determine if their bicycle is affected. If the bicycle is affected, consumers should visit their nearest Authorised bicycle brand retailer for a free replacement of the front quick-release.
