Trek recall 720 Disc bicycles and Bontrager front and rear wheels

A limited number of model year 2015, 2016 and 2017 Trek bicycles were made with a wheel set that exhibits a higher rate of spoke breakage.

On the front wheel of the bicycle, a broken spoke could engage with the brake calliper, causing the bicycle to stop suddenly, resulting in a serious accident.

Your safety is very important to us.

Therefore, Trek will replace the wheels on an affected bicycle, or an affected after-market wheel, free of charge.

This notice contains important information regarding what to do next if you think you may have purchased one of these bicycles or an after-market wheel.

DO NOT RIDE YOUR BICYCLE UNTIL THE WHEEL HAS BEEN INSPECTED
