woom Bikes USA had a serious “oopsie-daisy” moment when they found that all sizes of their 2018 to 2021 model bikes, designed for the kiddos from 18 months to 14 years, had the potential of morphing into a wild ride 🎠— without the fun part. They’ve had to recall all these bikes, and we’re talking about 84,000 units! No small number, folks!
So how did we get here? 🧐 According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, woom Bikes USA got a jaw-dropping 77 reports of the handlebar stem going AWOL, causing 19 injuries involving bruises, cuts, or abrasions.
