RECALL: Trek Kickster bikes pose fall hazard to children
(WENY) -- Trek Bicycle Corporation is recalling 11,560 of its Trek Kickster bikes, due to reports that the steer tube clamp on the bike can break, posing a fall hazard to children.
The recall includes all model year 2013 through 2019 Kicksters. The bikes are made for toddlers who are learning how to ride a two-wheeler. The Kicksters do not have pedals so children can focus on pedaling. They come in black, blue, red, and pink.
The firm has received 11 reports of broken steer tube clamps, including one injury with minor scrapes and bruising.
Consumers are urged to immediately take the recalled bikes away from children, and take them to a Trek retailer for a free repair.
