Trek Bicycle Corporation (Australia) Pty Ltd—Trek Bicycles Equipped with Disc Brakes & Quick Release Levers

Identifying features

Please see attachment for potentially affected models.

What are the defects?

When improperly used or left open, the quick release lever may open more than 180° and become caught in the disc brake assembly.

What are the hazards?

If this 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 with an affected Trek model bicycle should stop using their bicycle and take it to a Trek retailer for inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the quick release immediately. Bicycles that have already been fitted with a special quick release with washers will receive a replacement quick release with washers and a different lever.
