Consumer Notifications and Recalls

As a service to our customers, Gear West Bike & Triathlon will post any recalls and consumer notifications we are aware of, to keep you better informed. Below will be specific information regarding those recalls. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us here at 952-473-0093 or 877-TRI-PLUS.

ZIPP Front Wheel Hub Safety Recall

ZIPP 88v6, 88v7 and 88v8 aluminum front hubs are the subject of a safety recall. If your bike has a ZIPP 88v6, 88v7 or 88v8 aluminum front hub, PLEASE STOP RIDING YOUR BIKE until you confirm whether your hub is part of the recall. Some of the aluminum front hub flanges can fail. If your front hub flange fails, you could crash. There is no UPC code or serial number on the front hubs - however, the affected hubs are readily identifiable by the size of the external flange rings and clinch nuts. The geometry of all 3 models are the same and the models differ only in anodize colors. There are no rear hubs effected by this safety recall.

Voluntary Quick Release Recall

Some bicycles were sold equipped with disc brakes and a front quick release
lever that opens past 180°. If the quick release is improperly adjusted or
left open on a bicycle which also has a front disc brake, the quick release lever can
become caught in the front disc brake assembly. If this happens, the front 180° wheel could separate or come to a sudden stop and the rider could lose control of the bicycle.
