Trek has issued a recall for model year 2014 Trek Farley bicycles and framesets and 2015 Trek Farley 6 bicycles and framesets. The fork can separate from the steer tube, posing a fall hazard to the rider.

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. Additionally, both bicycle models were sold in 14.5 through 21.5 inch sizes with Trek printed across the bicycle frame.

Approximately 2,600 bicycles, in addition to about 360 sold in Canada, are involved in this recall and were sold at bicycle stores nationwide from September 2013 through August 2016 for between $1,700 and $2,600.

The company has received five reports of the bicycle fork separating from the steer tube. To date, no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and framesets and return them to a Trek retailer for a free inspection and repair.
