Warning against a dangerous bicycle Alpina Rocky!

(Prague, August 8, 2012) The CTIA warns against potential purchases of the Alpina Rocky bicycle. There are several reasons for such recommendation: the bicycle doesn’t have two independent brakes; pedals do not provide enough space for pedaling and the child may hit the mudguard with the toe-caps of his shoes; the handles are not efficiently fixed to the handlebar. Thus it is not possible to effectively stop the bicycle before a barrier; the child loses balance and falls when his shoe’s toe-cap gets hooked by the mudguard as well as when the handles unexpectedly pull off from the handlebar. The CTIA banned selling of this bike and the distributor withdrew the product from the market.
