Massive recall: front disk brakes & quick release

If you ride a bike with a quick release on the front disk brake hub, you need to read this.

There has been a massive recall across 13 different manufactures.

An open quick release lever on the bicycle’s front wheel hub can come into contact with the front disc brake rotor causing the front wheel to come to a sudden stop or separate from the bicycle, posing a risk of injury to the rider.
