What are the defects?

This bicycle does not comply with the mandatory standard for pedal bicycles (Consumer Protection Notice No. 6 of 2004 'Consumer Product Safety Standard: Pedal Bicycles: Safety Requirements').
The standard requires a children's bicycle to be fitted with two methods of braking, one of which must be a rear back pedal brake. This bicycle does not have a back-pedal brake, but has two hand operated rim brakes, one for the front wheel and one for the rear wheel.

What are the hazards?

There have been no reports of injury.

What should consumers do?

If consumers wish to have a back-pedal brake fitted, they should contact their place of purchase to arrange to have a rear pedal brake fitted to the bicycle, free of charge, when parts become available.
