Spot The Obvious Error!

I spent a sunny couple of hours helping out at the Magor & Undy Sponsored Charity Family Bike Ride 2018 in aid of Ty Hafan and Prostate Cymru, checking bikes over before the riders set out.

A group of cyclists waiting to set off

One rider came over with a bike they stated they had just picked up from a well known national chain that sells Bikes amongst other things. I immediately spotted the problem. Bearing in mind that this is a bike that a ‘mechanic’ is supposed to have fixed and presumably someone should have then checked their work.


I would like to think its unbelievable that someone could fit and then not notice back to front forks, especially as they had said they had given the bike free safety check, but sadly this isn’t the first time I have seen this sort of thing from this retailer.
