Cannondale recalls about 75 e-bikes with European brake setup

Published April 5, 2023

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Cannondale is recalling about 75 Tesoro Neo X Speed e-bikes that were delivered with the right brake lever activating the front brake, contrary to U.S. standards. 

"U.S. regulations require that the brake lever located on the right handlebar operate the rear wheel brake and the brake lever located on the left handlebar operate the front wheel brake. European regulations require the opposite setup (with the right-hand brake lever operating the front brake and the left-hand brake lever operating the rear brake) for MY 2022 Tesoro Neo X Speed Electric Bicycles. A small number of European setup bicycles were shipped to U.S. dealers, and given that they do not meet U.S. regulations, Cannondale is working with the U.S. CPSC to conduct this voluntary recall to make a repair available to any U.S. riders to switch the brake configuration," Cannondale said on its recall page

Consumers are being told to immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact Cannondale for instructions on how to receive a free repair. Cannondale is contacting all known purchasers directly. Other consumers are being told to contact Cannondale at (800) 245-3872 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email or go to

The recall involves the Cannondale Tesoro Neo X Speed e-bikes. They are gray with reflective accents on the frame and tires, and were sold in sizes small, medium, large and extra-large. The model is a Class 3 e-bike.

No incidents have been reported. The bikes were sold in September 2022 for about $5,500.
