What’s the Problem?
This recall affects about 600 Brompton Electric Folding Bicycles with a 3 section folding frame and 16-inch wheels, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“Due to a software malfunction, the electric system can continue to provide assistance to the motor, causing continued forward momentum, when the rider is not actively pedaling, posing fall and injury hazards,” CPSC said. “The firm has received one report of a software issue that caused a bicycle to provide continued assistance when the rider had stopped pedaling.”
The recalled bikes were sold in black, white, Turkish green & bolt lacquer. The serial number is printed on a label on the frame of the bicycle. Click here to view a complete list of serial numbers included in the recall.
