“Potentially deadly design fault.”


written by on 22/05/2022

I have had this bike about three years. I use it daily for short trips and gentle cycling on roads. I have had to replace the rear wheel because the drive ceased to operate after a couple of years. While that is not great, the reason for this review is that a potentially deadly fault came to light. Fortunately I was on a quiet road and wearing a backpack which significantly broke my fall when the bolt in the clamp that secures the saddle to the stem broke without warning depositing me on my back in the road. I would never have dreamed that such a thing could happen, but now I look at it, it is obviously unsafe that one's life and health may depend on a single bolt. This is a serious design fault which needs addressing.
