Scott, Trek Bicycle Fork Recall Issued Due to Crash Hazard

More than 125,000 bicycles have been recalled after the manufacturer received almost 30 reports of the front fork breaking, which may result in riders suddenly falling from the bike and suffering an injury.

The SR Suntour bicycle recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 25, after at least 29 reports were received involving problems where the front fork connecting to the front wheel broke during use. At least five of the accidents result in injuries, including bruises, a separated shoulder and broken bones.

The recall includes model year 2011 through 2013 SR Suntour Scott and Trek bicycles. The recalled Scott bicycles have 700c wheels, disc brakes, and either the NEX or NCX front fork models. Customers can locate the model names and numbers on the main frame of the bicycle or by identifying the color scheme of the bike.
