Multiple Manufactures Recall Bicycles with Front Disc Brake Issues

Chelcy Williams1 year ago

13 manufactures and distributors have recalled about 1.3 million bicycles due to crash hazard.

Details of the Mass Bicycle Recall

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an open quick release lever on the bicycle’s front wheel hub can come into contact with the front disc brake rotor causing the front wheel to come to a sudden stop or separate from the bicycle, posing a risk of injury to the rider.

Three incidents reported in connection with the faulty disc brakes resulting in sudden stop of the bicycle. An adult male suffered a broken finger, a wrist injury, a shoulder injury and abrasions. 

Consumers should stop using the bicycles immediately and contact the recalling company for free installation of a new quick release on the front wheel.

Models Affected by the Bicycle Recall

This recall involves bicycles equipped with front disc brakes and a black or silver quick-release (QR) lever on the front wheel hub.
