What are the hazards?
The front brake can fail. Loss of braking performance in the worst case scenario may lead to loss of control or an accident.
Huh, well, what do you know. That's exactly what happened with my bike back in May. The bolt holding the front brake on disappeared causing the front brake to pop off when I was using it. Although mine isn't a Trek.
Glad it happened on the flat. I thought it was just me and my lack of maintenance. Turns out the bike may have had a faulty bolt. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBLYkkmg8q8
