Trek Bicycles with JD Fork Suspension Recalled

trek_7500_recall_jd_fork

Trek Bicycles is recalling all 2009 bicycles that use the JD Fork design. Apparently the fork can lose alignment causing the front wheel to turn unexpectedly. This may cause the rider to lose control of the bicycle and crash. The model’s in questions are:

  • 2009 Trek 7300
  • 2009 Trek 7300WSD
  • 2009 Trek 7500

The model name is printed on the bicycle’s frame and the forks have the words “Bontrager SPA” printed on them. They sold at Trek dealers nationwide from August 2008 through April 2009 for between $640 and $940.  

Consumers should stop riding the recalled bikes immediately and contact their dealer to arrange for a free repair. You can also contact Trek’s recall hotline at (800) 382-2453 between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Saturday.
