Many people choose Pedego when making the decision to buy an expensive eBike because of the brands name recognition and the sense that their electric bikes are safe. Unfortunately, some of their bicycles have been found to be defective, which could end up causing a serious injury or death to a consumer in a bike accident.

On September 23, 2020 Pedego Inc., of Fountain Valley, California in conjunction with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a Pedego recall for multiple models of their popular eBikes.

Why have the Pedego bikes been recalled?

The electric bicycles were recalled because an improperly manufactured electrical cable can cause the bicycle to accelerate unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard to the user. Although Pedego has reported that they have only received five reports of the bike’s electrical cable malfunctioning, with no injuries, it may be possible that one of the defective bicycles could cause serious injuries to a cyclist.
