Trek recall Farley Bikes

The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:

  • 2014 Farley
  • 2014 Farley frameset
  • 2015 Farley 6
  • 2015 Farley 6 frameset

A small number of these bicycles were made with a fork that was assembled incorrectly. An incorrectly assembled fork could come out of alignment with the handlebar, which could allow the front wheel to turn unexpectedly and cause you to fall. If this happens, you could be involved in a serious accident.

Your safety is very important to us. Therefore, Trek will replace the fork on an affected bicycle, free of charge. This letter contains important information regarding what to do next if you think you may have purchased one of these bicycles or framesets.

DO NOT RIDE YOUR BICYCLE UNTIL THE FORK HAS BEEN INSPECTED

If the front wheel turns unexpectedly, you could be involved in a serious accident. Do not ride this bicycle until your dealer has inspected the fork to determine if it is affected by this recall.

WHAT TREK WILL DO FOR OWNERS OF A RECALLED BICYCLE

If you own a bicycle that is affected by this recall, Trek will provide you—through your Trek dealer—a free replacement of the fork on your bicycle in a matching color, including free installation. In addition, when your recalled bike has been repaired, Trek will give you a coupon worth $100 in your choice of Trek products. If you have any questions, please contact your Trek retailer.
