Trek has issued a recall notice on a limited number of model year 2015, 2016 and 2017 Trek bicycles.

Specifically the issue relates to Bontrager Approved TLR Disc 700C 24H front and rear wheels, which are thought to carry an issue in which a broken spoke could engage with the brake caliper.

The firm is encouraging those riding 2015, 2016, and 2017 720 Disc bicycles and Bontrager Approved TLR Disc 700C 24H to check in with their local dealer for an inspection and free replacement for those affected.

The recall notice reads:

DO NOT RIDE YOUR BICYCLE UNTIL THE WHEEL HAS BEEN INSPECTED

If you break a spoke, it could engage the brake caliper and you could be involved in a serious accident. Do not ride this bicycle until your dealer has inspected the bicycle to determine if it is affected by this recall.

WHAT TREK WILL DO FOR OWNERS OF A RECALLED BICYCLE OR AFTERMARKET WHEELS

If you own a bicycle (or wheel) that is affected by this recall, Trek will provide you—through your Trek dealer—a free replacement of the wheel set on your bicycle, including free installation. If you purchased an affected aftermarket wheel, you will receive a replacement wheel through your Trek dealer. In addition, when your recalled product has been repaired, Trek will give you a coupon worth $100 to use toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise. The coupon is good through December 31, 2017 and has no cash value. If you have any questions, please contact your Trek retailer.
