MEC Provincial Road 222 bikes may be missing a set screw on the fork through-axle. The through-axle set screw holds the axle nut in place when the axle is removed, and it also keeps the nut stationary when the axle is being tightened. If the through-axle isn’t tightened, it could pose a safety hazard.
We have sent a set screw to members who purchased this bike, along with instructions for inspection and installation (pdf of instructions).
The quick release on the rear wheel is not affected by this issue.
