Trek brand bicycles recalled over alignment problem

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Trek brand bicycles with JD suspension forks because the forks can lose alignment, causing the front wheel to turn unexpectedly. This can cause the rider to lose control of the bicycle and crash.

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.

About 16,000 were sold across the United States from August 2008 through April 2009 for between $640 and $940 US each.

Consumers should stop riding the recalled bicycles immediately and contact their dealer to arrange for a free repair.
