Giant Simple 3 Review

#1 kickstand is too short. Bike falls over. Breaks things. Breaks mirrors. Breaks camera mount. Breaks mirror mounts. Damages camera.

#2 Rear axle will not stay in place. Adjust chain. Tighten axle. Chain slack. Tighten chain. Tighten axle. Chain slack. Adjust chain. Tighten axle. Tension good. Ride bike. Axle slides forward when axle nuts are so tight they are almost stripped. Chain falls off at 35 kph down a hill. Kiss your ass good-bye!

No wait! Put your new shoe down and scrape the sole off. That’s the way Fred Flintstone stops. One shoe lower than the other. Walk lopsided.

#3 Adjust seat level. Ride bike. Seat points up. Ouch!
Adjust seat level. Ride bike. Seat points up. Seat bracket is loose again. Adjust seat down. Tighten seat bolt. Seat stays down. (no way to lock seat in level position so give up!)

#4 Why do my pedals feel like they are bent? Are pedal axles bending??

#5 Take bike to dealer for warranty repair to above problems and hope like hell it can be corrected.

End of story… TBA
