What are the defects?

The bicycles do not meet the marking requirements of the mandatory standard 'Consumer Protection Notice No. 6 of 2004 - Consumer Product Safety Standard: Pedal Bicycles: Safety Requirements'.

The bicycles were fitted with wheel reflectors that do not have the required markings on them.

What are the hazards?

If the wheel reflectors are not marked correctly, the bicycle may not adequately protect a rider as it is intended. In extreme circumstances this may contribute to an accident and injury to the rider.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their local Giant Bicycles retailer to arrange an appointment to have the new wheel reflectors fitted that meet the Australian Standard.

Consumers can find contact details for their local Giant Bicycles dealer via the website https://www.giant-bicycles.com/au/stores
