There has been a major recall of bicycles from thirteen manufacturers including popular brands such as Cannondale, Diamondback, and Specialized. The bicycles being recalled are those equipped with front disc brakes and black or silver quick-release levers. The hazard is caused by an open quick release lever on the bicycle’s front wheel hub that is coming into contact with the front disc brake causing the bicycle to come to a sudden stop. This is a serious hazard for cyclists that can cause you to be thrown forward from your bike. Bicycles that do not have disc brakes are not included in this recall. If you are unsure if your bicycle is included in this recall there is a video on www.quickreleaserecall.com. If your bicycle is included in this recall please reach out to bicycle manufacturer to request a new lever to be installed.
