BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A bike manufacterer is issuing a recall for almost 1 million bicycles.

Trek is recalling bikes that are equipped with front disc brakes.057206432D5D41188DF7A7C3A6734DC3

Consumer safety experts say a “quick release” lever near the front wheel can come into contact with the brake. That could cause the wheel to stop suddently or seperate from the bike.

One bike rider was paralyzed in an accident on one of these Trek bicycles.

Concerned customers can contact a Trek dealer to have the lever replaced for free. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
