CPSC recalling 2 million Peloton bikes because of faulty seatpost

Published May 11, 2023

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 2.2 million Peloton bikes because of a fall-and-injury hazard because the seatpost assembly can break.

Consumers of the Peloton Model PL01 should stop using it and contact Peloton for a free repair. The company is offering a free seatpost that can be installed.

Peloton has received 35 reports of the post breaking and detaching from the bike. Thirteen injuries have been reported, including a fractured wrist, lacerations, and bruises due to falling from the bike.

The recalled Peloton bike measures 4 x 2 feet, has an adjustable seat, handlebar, and screen. The Peloton name and the model number are displayed on the inside front fork, near the flywheel.

The bike was sold at Peloton and Dick's Sporting Goods stores nationwide and online at Onepeloton, Amazon, and Dick's from January 2018 through May 2023 for about $1,400.
