Trek Bicycle Corporation of Waterloo, Wis., is recalling about 345,000 sets of Bontrager Satellite City Bicycle Pedals in the U.S. and Canada.
If the pedals are incorrectly installed by the retailer during assembly, they can fall off the crank arm of the bicycle, posing fall and injury hazards to the rider.
The firm has received 132 reports of the recalled pedals loosening, locking up or falling off, including seven reports of riders falling and experiencing injuries, including scrapes, bruises and road rash.
This recall involves Bontrager Satellite City Pedals, which were installed as original equipment on Trek “Allant+,” “Dual Sport+,” “FX 2,” “FX 3,” “Verve 2,” “Verve 3,” and “Verve+” model bicycles.
“ZTR02” is stamped on the bicycle’s pedal and on the pedals that were sold separately as a replacement part.
The pedals have orange reflectors on the outside edges.
The pedals, manufactured in China, were sold at Trek Bicycle stores and other bicycle stores nationwide, and online at trekbikes.com from January 2018, through April 2021, for between $600 and $6,000. The pedals were also sold separately for about $30.

Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles equipped with the recalled pedals and contact their local authorized Trek retailer for instructions on receiving free installation of replacement pedals.
