Dive Bars: Lala's

According to the Austin Business Journal, Lala's Little Nugget (the bar on Justin Lane with the Christmas theme) will reopen under new management.   This news follows concern of Lala's being permanently out of business, after Eater Austin reported the bar had been closed for over a week.

Follow Up on the Trek Recall

A few months ago, I mentioned the Trek recall of certain bikes with defective front quick release mechanisms.  I took mine in to the Bicycle Sport Shop earlier this summer.  They fixed the problem in under 10 minutes (while I shopped for parts) and handed me the $20 gift certificate when the recall repair was over.   Quick and easy.

Trek Bike Recall

Unfortunate news:  Trek Bicycles has issued a recall of almost 1M bikes manufactured between years 2000-2015.  According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, the recall includes all bikes with front disc brakes and a quick release level that can extend more than 180 degrees (the bikes with these levers were made in Taiwan and China then sold for price points between $480-$1650).  The lever can come into contact with the brake disc, thus resulting in sudden stopping of the front wheel or complete separation from the frame.  It has been reported that one person has been rendered paralyzed by injuries caused by the defective quick release lever.

If you own a Trek bike which fits the above description, you are advised to immediately contact an authorized Trek retailer to arrange for a free replacement of the defective lever (in Austin, the listed retailers are Mellow Johnny's and the Bicycle Sport Shop).  Owners of the recalled bikes are advised to not ride them until the problem can be fixed.  For your trouble, Trek will throw in a $20 gift certificate for its line of Bontrager gear.
