Another Asda bike blooper
Through the wonders of Twitter I found the image below.
In case you haven’t spotted it the front forks are facing backwards, making the bike dangerous because the brakes and steering will not work correctly. In case you cannot see the image below you can view it here
This again highlights the fact that bikes need to be set-up properly. This is not simply an issue for Asda – although they get the egg on face – but many other large retailers as well. And of course it’s an issue for customers also, as its their money and their safety on the line when a bike is not assembled correctly.
If you have any similar photos or video of bikes in store which are not set-up incorrectly please let me know as I think a “rogues gallery” would be a useful way of highlighting the breadth of the problem. Contact me here
