The pedals can detach from the bionic runner bicycle, posing a fall hazard to riders.
This recall involves the Gen 2 Bionic Runner bicycles that mimic running motion. The bicycles are black and have red pedals and red trim around the wheels. The bicycles have a folding frame and “BIONIC RUNNER” is printed in white on the side of the stirrups.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycles and contact Running Trainer to receive free replacement pedals. The firm has contacted all registered owners directly.
The firm has received one report of a pedal detaching from the bicycle, resulting in an injury to a rider who fell off the bicycle and scraped the rider’s knees and finger.
