WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Trek, has issued a voluntary recall of about 16,000 bikes with JD suspension forks.
The recalled bicycle's fork can lose alignment causing the front wheel to turn unexpectedly. This can cause the rider to lose control of the bicycle and crash. There have been four reports of misaligned forks. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves model year 2009 Trek 7300, 7300WSD, and 7500 bicycles. The model name is printed on the bicycle's frame. The bicycles have a suspension fork with the words "Bontrager SPA" printed on them.
These bikes were sold at Trek bicycle dealers nationwide from August 2008 through April 2009 for between $640 and $940. They were manufactured in Taiwan (the forks only)
Consumers should stop riding the recalled bicycles immediately and contact their dealer to arrange for a free repair.
