The recall is due to a faulty assembly of the Bike Model PL01, which can break during use and cause falls and injuries.

Peloton has received over two dozen reports of the seat post breaking and detaching during use. The impacted bike model was manufactured in Taiwan and sold in the US between January 2018 and May 2023 at Peloton, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Amazon.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has reported 13 injuries so far, including a fractured wrist, lacerations, and bruises. Peloton is offering a free seat post that can be self-installed to consumers who contact them for a free repair.

This recall comes just over a year after Peloton began outsourcing the production of its bikes and treadmills following the closure of a $400 million manufacturing facility. It is the second recall in the past few years, following the recall of 125,000 Tread and Tread+ treadmills after a child's death and other problems.

The recalls have been costly for Peloton, which estimated that the Tread and Tread+ recalls cost the company approximately $165 million, including refunds and ending deliveries of the impacted products.

The bike can be identified by a label on the inside front fork, near its flywheel or non-swivel display, or by the red “P” logo and Peloton brand name in white on the frame.
