Schwinn’s Tone model electrical scooters are being recalled after customers reported loosened and split handlebars, according to the U.S. Customer Item Security Commission.
“The e-scooter’s handlebar grips can loosen or crack, posturing fall and injury hazards,” the CPSC said in a statement posted online on Wednesday.
“The scooters can be found in black or white and have a ‘T’ handlebar and an around two-foot-long board. The e-scooter’s identification number is located on the bottom of the board,” the federal government agency continued.The scooter is sold at bicycle merchants across the country and has been readily available online at schwinnbikes.com and Amazon. The designs currently being recalled were readily available for buy from May of 2020 till February of 2021 and retailed from anywhere in between$350 and$550, according to the CPSC.The recall, which is being carried out by Pacific Cycle, consists of the Schwinn Tone 1, Tone 2, and Tone 3, all of which are produced in China.”The repair work kit can be installed by the consumer and consists of all needed tools and instructions, which are likewise offered in video format. Pacific Cycle estimates it will take consumers between five and ten minutes to install,”the CPSC said in a statement published online. From Pacific Cycle: Customers should immediately stop riding the e-scooter and contact us at 877-564-2261 from 7am to 6pm CST Monday through Friday to receive a free and easy to set up repair work package that consists of a new handlebar system. The guidelines for fixing the scooter are online at Pacific Cycle and there’s even a video that strolls you through the process. Oddly, it appears Pacific Cycle has actually switched off embeds on the Vimeo variation of the video but you can still find it on the company’s site. But if you ‘d rather the business fix it for you, that’s still an alternative. The company will
even pay shipping costs.”Additionally, customers can deliver the e-scooter back to Pacific Cycle for repair work, at no cost to the customer, “the CPSC said.
