A handlebar problem on an electric scooter might take users for a tumble, which is why Pacific Cycle recalled about 11,340 Schwinn Tone Electric Scooters.
The exact problem, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The e-scooter’s handlebar grips can loosen or crack, posing fall and injury hazards.”
The alert says Pacific Cycle knows of nine loosened or cracked handlebars, including one that caused a consumer to fall and suffer scrapes and bruises.
This covers all models of Schwinn Tone Electric Scooter, Tone 1, Tone 2 and Tone 3, which come in black and white.
Pacific Cycle is offering only to send a free repair kit or repair the scooter after you send the scooter to Pacific. If you want a refund, you’ll need to ask the seller.
