Nearly one million Trek brand bicycles are being recalled over a safety
hazard that resulted in one bicyclist becoming paralyzed.
Trek has issued a recall of nearly one million of its bicycles for a defective
component. According to reports, a quick release lever on the bicycle
can get in the way of the brakes, which in turn causes the wheel to stop
and even detach completely from the bike while it is in motion. In addition
to the 900,000 recalls in the U.S., 98,000 Trek bikes have been recalled
One rider reportedly was paralyzed and is now a quadriplegic because of
an accident cause by the bicycle defect. Other reports include consumer
complaints of injuries to the face and wrists.
