Peloton Recalls 2.2 Million Exercise Bikes Due to Safety Risks

Peloton has recalled 2.2 million exercise bikes due to a risk of the seat post breaking, which may cause injuries to riders.

The recall affects the Peloton model PL01 sold between January 2018 and May 2023. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 35 reports of seat posts breaking, including 13 reports of injuries.

Peloton is offering a free repair to affected customers.

If you own a Peloton bike, you should immediately stop using it and contact Peloton for a free repair.

The recall only affects the original Peloton Bike sold in the United States, and not international models nor its more recent Bike+ model.

The recall is not the first serious regulatory incident for Peloton. In 2021, the company faced safety concerns with its Tread+ treadmill after dozens of safety incidents, including the death of one child.

Peloton was also fined $19 million for failing to report safety issues with its treadmill.

As a Peloton user, you may be worried about the safety of your equipment. The recall affects a large number of bikes, so you're not alone.

It's important to prioritize your safety and follow the recall instructions.

If you're a Peloton owner, you may be wondering how to check if your bike is affected by the recall.

The affected model number is PL01, which can be found on the bottom of the tablet and on the original packaging.

Peloton is offering customers a free repair kit, which includes a new seat post that can be self-installed.

Peloton has also provided a toll-free number (866-679-9129) for customers to contact for more information or to request a repair.
