Re: Tredz Bikes in Cardiff & Swansea

Your contract is with the retailer not the supplier - However they are entitled to take reasonable measures to determine the cause of the issue, which may well involve sending it back to their suppliers. What's reasonable is of course open to debate. Tredz is a part of the Halfords Group, the servi...

Re: Problem with seat post

Undo the screw a few turns and carefully hit the head of the screw. The screw pulls a wedge towards another wedge that pushes on the post and locks it all in place. If it's well wedged together some impact is required to get it moving. Sometimes pulling or pushing on the saddle will do the trick. G...
