WATERLOO, Wis. (BRAIN) — Trek is issuing a voluntary recall of model year 2015, 2016 and 2017 Trek 720 Disc bicycles as well as Bontrager Approved TLR Disc 700c 24-spoke front and rear wheels.
The recall affects 1,529 bikes globally, Trek said.
Trek says a limited number of bicycles were made with wheelsets that exhibit a higher rate of spoke breakage. A broken spoke on the front wheel could engage with the brake caliper, causing the bicycle to stop suddenly.
Trek contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to begin the process of the recall action.
As part of the recall, Trek will provide free replacement wheels through its authorized retailers. To incentivize owners to return them, Trek will issue a $100 coupon to each owner of an affected product who participates, good toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise through Dec. 31, 2017.
Trek retailers have been notified, and replacement wheels are currently available.
