It might be difficult to get an electric bike from Lyft’s bike share program for the foreseeable future — at least in New York, Washington and San Fransisco.
“We recently received a small number of reports from riders who experienced stronger than expected braking force on the front wheel,” the company said in a blog post emailed to customers on Sunday, according to Reuters.
Lyft didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lyft’s bike share program aims to replace about 3,000 pedal-assist bikes in the three cities with traditional bikes to prevent service interruptions, according to Reuters. Lyft already operates around 17,000 regular bikes in New York, Washington and San Fransisco.
