The Trek Bicycle Corporation has recalled a number of models from its MT220 range of girls’ bikes. According to Trek, there is a problem with the welding at the base of the head tube which could lead to breakages. Those owning these models have been asked to return them to their dealer in exchange for a new MT220 or a $US100/UK£75 voucher towards another Trek bike.
The models affected are those from the last three years that do not have a reinforcing gusset near the head tube. They are the light metallic blue and metallic silver/metallic purple (2005), metallic silver/metallic purple and pink/white pearl (2006), pink/white pearl and metallic purple (2007).
Trek has provided two numbers to call for more information: 800 373 4594 (USA) and 01908 282 626 (UK).
