Using a hybrid for ‘cross or commuting? With 700c wheels and cantilever brake posts, hybrids can make great starter ‘cross bikes. But if you own a recent model Trek or Cannondale hybrid with a house-branded suspension fork, see the recall info below:
Trek and Cannondale have recalled select hybrid forks, made by JD Components of Taiwan. The fork is a suspension fork with the shock built into the steerer tube, and looks similar to Cannondale’s Headshock but is much smaller.
