Peloton is recalling 2.2 million exercise bikes due to a risk of the seat post breaking, and owners are being told to "immediately stop using" the bikes until they can be repaired.

The recall affects Peloton model PL01, sold from Jan. 2018 through this month.

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled exercise bikes and contact Peloton for a free repair.

Peloton is offering consumers a free seat post that can be self-installed," the CPSC added.

The recall affects only the original Peloton Bike sold in the United States, the company said, and not international models nor its more recent Bike+ model.

In 2021, the CPSC warned consumers to stop using Peloton's Tread+ treadmill after dozens of safety incidents, including the death of one child.

Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a $19 million fine for failing to report those safety issues with its treadmill. »

Officers David Sneed and Neal Storey from the Enid Police Department in Oklahoma initially received a report from a concerned member of the public that someone could be heard yelling for help in the area.

Your swift actions (although in the end not necessary) are appreciated by us all," said the Enid Police Department. »

The Typhoon’s ‘supercruise’ capability enables high-speed flight at sustained speeds of over Mach 1 without the use of afterburner.

For the RAF, this is the second deployment of Typhoons to eastern Europe since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russian last year. »

This video was hinting that the next entry in the Mortal Kombat series wouldn't be Mortal Kombat 12, but a remake of the original Mortal Kombat or possibly a reboot of the series.

Spoiler warning for Mortal Kombat 11: The next Mortal Kombat being a reboot of the franchise does make sense considering how the storyline of the previous game, Mortal Kombat 11 panned out.

Going off from the previous game and the leak, Mortal Kombat 1 may be a retelling of the original Mortal Kombat game. »
