Mighty Ape - Royal Baby childrens bicycles

The Hazard!

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Product Safety Standards (Pedal Bicycle) Regulations 2000 as the Bicycles do not have a rear pedal brake mechanism. Without a rear back-pedal brake children may not be able to brake sufficiently using the front/rear brakes controlled by the handlebars, which could result in an accident and injury of the rider.

What to do...

Stop using the bicycle and contact Mighty Ape to arrange a return and refund. Mighty Ape is also contacting all identified customers that were originally sold an affected bicycle.
