Trek Bicycle Corporation of Waterloo, Wis., is recalling about 2,840 Trek Super Commuter+ 8S electric bicycles.
The front fender bolt can unthread causing the wheel to detach from the bicycle, posing a fall hazard.
The firm has received two reports of the wrong bolt being installed to secure the front fender to the fork crown. One injury -- a vertebrae fracture -- has been reported.
The bikes, manufactured in China, were sold at independent bicycle stores nationwide and online at www.trekbikes.com and other websites from June 2017, through June 2019, for about $5,200.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycle and take it to a Trek retailer for a free inspection and repair.
Consumers may contact Trek at (800) 373-4594 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (CT) Monday through Friday, or online at www.trekbikes.com and click on Safety & Recalls at the bottom of the page for more information.
