Information on the Quick Release Skewer Recall

There is a lot of talk going on about Trek and Quick Release skewers on disk brake models of bikes. We want to let you know that this is a problem not limited to Trek, but one that affects the entire bike industry and brands that chose that particular skewer.
So far, Trek is the only bike company to issue a recall for select models of disc brake equipped bikes sold over the past 15 years.

If you have a bike that you believe is affected, please contact us and we will assist you by replacing your quick release skewer (we will have replacement skewers available starting Friday, April 24th.)

Trek will also provide each owner who participates in the recall with a $20.00 coupon that is redeemable by December 31, 2015 towards any Bontrager or Trek merchandise. There is no cash value on the coupon- Trek encourages you to use the full coupon amount on a purchase.

Here are a couple articles to check out pertaining to the recall.

If you have any questions on your bike, feel free to give us a call. 

If your bike is NOT a disc brake version then you do not need to worry.

If you have a disc brake bike WITHOUT a quick release you do not need to worry.

If your bike uses a thru axel, you do not need to worry.

If you take your front wheel in/out, it's important to double check that you have the skewer tightened down properly.

If you have any questions on how to properly tighten your skewer, please feel to have us show you!
