Bicycles are affected only if they have disc brakes and front-wheel quick-releases. Front-wheel quick-release cam levers that are improperly adjusted or left open during riding and do not meet the 'pencil test' have potential to interfere with the front disc brake rotor, this may result in a serious fall / crash injury.
What to do...
Check the distance between the disc and cam lever using the ‘pencil test’ which is described in the video link below. If the distance between the leading edge of the cam lever in its most open position and the disc rotor is less than 6mm (width of pencil) your quick-release mechanism needs to be replaced. Bikes can be taken free of charge into a Giant dealer for a replacement of the affected quick-release.
