Trek recalls 998K bikes for defective lever
At least 998,000 bicycles in the U.S. and Canada have been recalled due to a faulty front quick-release lever that may cause the bike to crash, an article by Tech Times stated on April 22.
Reports said Trek Bicycle Corporation issued the recall after receiving three injury complaints, including one victim who was permanently paralyzed. The recall affects Trek bike 2000-2015 models. Trek explained that the affected bikes, most of which are in the US, may suddenly stop during operation if the front quick release lever becomes loose and comes into contact with the front disc brake. Owners of the recalled bikes are advised to visit their bike dealers for a free inspection and repair that will only take a few minutes.
