Hayes/Sun Ringle has voluntarily issued a safety recall for certain 2007 and 2008 Sun Ringle quick releases. The quick releases can unexpectedly fail or break when in the closed position on the bicycle, causing the rider to lose control, which poses a serious fall hazard.
This recall involves Sun Ringle's following Hollow Quick Releases:
Hollow Chromoly Quick Release: Front 100mm
Hollow Chromoly Quick Release: Rear 130mm

These quick releases were sold individually and with the following Sun Ringle wheelsets:

To solve the problem, consumers should stop riding bicycles with the recalled quick releases immediately, remove the quick releases and bring them to us for a free inspection and replacement.
Note that hollow quick releases (above, left) are included in this recall. Quick releases with solid skewers (above, right) are NOT included in this recall.
Please check the list above to see if you have the affected Sun Ringle quick releases. If so, please bring them to us so that we may check them for recall.
