Trek bike recall
SOME Trek bikes and certain Bontrager aftermarket wheels have been recalled.
The subject of the Product Safety Australia recalls are Trek 720 Disc bicycles (model years 2015, 2016 and 2017), and Bontrager Approved TLR Disc 700C 24H Black aftermarket front and rear wheels.
Defects involve the Trek’s front brake caliper which could engage with a broken spoke, causing the rider to lose control.
Anyone with the affected Trek model bicycles or bicycle wheels should stop using their bike and take it to a Trek retailer for inspection and repair immediately.
Affected bicycles will be fitted with replacement wheels and owners of aftermarket wheels will receive a replacement wheel.
Consumers will also receive a coupon worth $120 to spend at Trek retailers on Trek or Bontrager products.
