Trek is recalling its 2017 to 2019 model Super Commuter+ bikes due to a fender bolt that can cause serious injury to the rider.
According to the company announcement, the wrong bolt holding the front fender to the fork crown can unthread while riding. This causes the bike to stop suddenly, which puts the rider at serious risk of fall and injury.
This recall involves all 2017, 2018, and 2019 year models of the Trek Super Commuter+ 8S electric bicycles. Approximately 2,840 of the electric bikes are involved in this recall.
The bike was sold in Viper Red with black decals in sizes 45/S through 60/XL. The bike also has an integrated battery and motor.
The company has received two reports of the wrong bolt being installed which secures the front fender to the fork crown. There has been one injury which resulted in a vertebrae fracture.
The bikes were sold online through Trek, as well as sold at independent bicycle stores nationwide for about $5,200 between June 2017 and June 2019.
Trek has asked consumer to stop riding the bikes immediately and take it to a Trek retailer as soon as possible. The company will conduct a free inspection of the bolt. If the wrong one is found to have been installed in the bike, the company will replace it.
