Trek Bicycles is voluntarily recalling 2,960 Farley fat bikes from 2014 and 2015. The steer tube and the fork can separate, causing a fall hazard. Five instances of this failure have been reported to date, but no injuries have been reported yet.
According to the CPSC:
This recall involves model year 2014 Trek Farley bicycles and framesets and 2015 Trek Farley 6 bicycles and framesets. The 2014 Trek Farley is black with green decals with an aluminum frame and fork. The 2014 frameset is sky blue with orange decals. The 2015 Trek Farley 6 is black with blue decals with an aluminum frame and fork. Both bicycle models were sold in 14.5 through 21.5 inch sizes. “Trek” is printed across the bicycle frame.
Consumers are asked to “stop using the recalled bicycles and framesets and return the bicycles to a Trek retailer for a free inspection and repair.”
