CPSC Recalls Electric Bikes

Posted on November 3, 2020

The "Boomerang Plus," one of the bikes affected by the Pedego recall.

Six models of the Pedego electric bicycle have been voluntarily recalled due to a potential defect that causes them to unexpectedly accelerate, as reported recently by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). At issue is a faulty electrical cable connection which speeds up the bikes momentarily, posing a fall risk to the riders.

The recall affects approximately 11,600 bikes purchased at bicycle stores nationwide and online at pedegoelectricbikes.com between January 2018 and August 2020. Models include the Interceptor, City Commuter, Boomerang Plus, Ridge Rider, Trail Tracker and Stretch.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact a local Pedego dealer to arrange for a free repair,” according to the CPSC. Bike owners may call the company toll-free at 888-871-7115 during business hours or find more information online at https://www.pedegobikerecall.expertinquiry.com/.
