According to Trek, this recall was prompted by “an abnormality in the connection between the fork and steer tube.” This defect has the potential to cause a separation at the base of the crown and steerer, which could lead to serious accidents. To date, there have been no reports of injuries.

Owners of these fat bikes should stop riding them immediately. To remedy this issue, authorized Trek dealers will install a replacement fork. Parts and labor are free to the owners.

To incentivize the replacement, Trek will also include a $100 coupon good towards any Trek or Bontrager product for every bike returned for service.
