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.

This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
