Trek Recall

Be careful where you sit!!

http://www.whec.com/news/stories/S2348142.shtml?cat=566

But seriously, I personally know of one Trek rider who had this happen with his new bike. Though he was neither injured nor skewered he was greatly inconvenienced.

"The bolts that secure the seat saddle clamp to the seat can break causing you to fall. Trek has received four reports, one involving a broken tooth and lip injury. The bikes were sold at specialty bike shops between May and September."

That was me this July. Riding along at slow speed, stood for a small rise and my seat fell off the seat post as I touched it with my butt. The seat bag kept the seat from falling into the tire. Sheared bolt head.

Lucky I found someone to pick me up, otherwise. It was a 6 mile ride home standing up.

There also is a Trek carbon fork recall going on which was posted on Road Bike Rider newsletter. I already deleted it so I do not have a link. You just have to love Chinese quality control.

Lenny,
Just check'n back in from time to time. I saw this opening and thought I'd pull your chain. Take care good friend.
I'm still riding, but my verticle has been mostly on foot.
