  • Citi Bike pulls all of its e-bikes from service after riders thrown over handlebars

Last year, Lyft acquired Motivate, the largest USA bike-share company, which owns the Citi Bikes in New York City and the Capital Bikeshare in Washington D.C.

About 3,000 Lyft bikes now in use in New York, Washington and San Francisco, are being removed.

Riders complained that front braking was "stronger than expected" on the assisted bikes, it said.

Lillard, Kanter power Blazers over Thunder in Game 1
The Blazers - who made 12 of 20 shots from the field, 7 of 10 from 3-point range - took a 39-25 advantage into the second quarter. With Kanter's play through three quarters and Lillard's play in crunch time , it proved to be too much for the Thunder to handle.

The bike share brands that were impacted by the service removal include Citi Bike in New York, Capital Bikeshare in Washington D.C., and Ford GoBike in the Bay Area. "Out of an abundance of caution, we are proactively removing the pedal-assist bikes from service", the companies said in respective statements. "Safety always comes first".

The company said it had been working on a new electric bike model that would be ready to deploy soon.

The electric bikes will be replaced with regular pedal bikes until the problem is fixed, Lyft said.
