According to the ACCC, this Bicycle does not comply with Australia’s mandatory standard for pedal bicycles (Consumer Protection Notice No. 6 of 2004 ‘Consumer Product Safety Standard: Pedal Bicycles: Safety Requirements’).
Australia’s standard requires all Children’s Bicycles to be fitted with two (2) methods of braking, one of which must be a rear back pedal brake. The recalled Bicycles do not have a back-pedal brake, but has two hand operated rim brakes, one for the front wheel and one for the rear wheel.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Children’s Bicycles, please do not use them nor allow your child to ride or play with them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund or arrange to have a rear pedal brake fitted to the Bicycle, free of charge, when parts become available.
