USA – Trek bikes are recalling over 7 years of toddler bikes saying that the handlebars may come off and riders will lose control.
A total of 13,360 bikes will be recalled and fixed. The high end bike costs around 170 dollars each. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice, this has happened 11 times, causing “one injury with minor scrapes and bruising.”
The exact problem, as explained in the recall notice on Trek’s website: “The clamp that holds the steer tube in place may break if over-tightened…If the clamp breaks, the handlebars can come off the bicycle, and the rider can fall.”
