What’s the Problem?
January 20, 2017 – According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), this recall affects model year 2015, 2016, and 2017 Trek model 720 Disc bicycles and Bontrager Approved TLR disc 700C 24H Front and Rear Wheels with silver spokes.
Trek says the bikes were made with wheelsets that showed higher rate of spoke breakage. A broken spoke on the front wheel could engage with the brake caliper, causing the bicycle to stop suddenly.
CPSC has received at least 10 reports where either the wheel spoke contacted the bike’s brake caliper or the spokes broke at the hub, including one injury involving a broken vertebra.
Trek will provide free replacement wheels through its authorized retailers and is issuing $100 coupons to each owner of an affected product who participates, good toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise through Dec. 31, 2017.
