Just discovered the joy of cycling (fed up of other car users while i was driving, and also to help me get some exercise for my recovering fractured foot), I 'borrowed' my brothers Kirk Revolution for a while, before buying a Claud Butler 'Stone River'.
Today, barely a week after it arrived the right pedal flew of taking the thread as well for the peddle attatchment, this really has annoyed me. So im thinking, is there a quality issue with CB bikes, am I just unlucky? Or have i not made the right decision on the choice of bike?
For the record my journey to work is via a canal towpath mainly rough and gravely now, muddy in wet), is the bike not built for this type of trip on regular basis?
Thanks in advance
