If you live in the state of New Jersey, this is important to you;
The state legislature is trying to pass a new bill that would essentially make it illegal to sell a bicycle in the state with a front quick release. Thanks to frivolous lawsuits across the country where consumers have been injured by incorrect use of their quick release equipped bicycles, the sale of bicycles with a front quick release is now in serious danger.
If you live in the state of New Jersey or own a bike shop in the state, I highly recommend that you call your local assembly person and tell them that you do not support this bill.
The bill is #2686 and is sponsored by Paul Moriarty of District 4 (Camden & Gloucester), David Mayer of District 4 and Joan Voss of District 38 (Bergen).
Voice your opinion on this matter or lose the front quick release on your next bike!
