Some Trek 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.
Cervelo has voluntarily recalled all Wolf SL forks on their carbon fiber bikes.
Dimension has recalled their threadless road and mountain bike 130 degree rise stems.
Below are links to a diagram of lengths, as well as more information regarding the recall. Please call us with questions. If you think you have this stem on a bike purchased from Gear West Bike & Tri, do not ride the bike, and bring it in for an immediate stem swap.
