No brakes, even though description says it can reverse pedal
on June 19, 2014
I was excited to purchase this bike for my special needs son who wanted a bicycle. When it arrived, though the packaging was pretty damaged, the bike was in tact. One BIG issue, the website said that you can stop the bike with reverse pedaling. However, the instructions stated to never ride on inclines because the bike had no brakes, and when you reverse pedal, the bike instead goes backwards. Obviously, this is a big deal living in an area where it isn't completely flat since I live in a more rural terrain. And while I had no plans of sending him down a big hill, knowing that he cannot stop the bike when he wants to get off was a big enough concern to warrant a return.
