Bicycle 1: Federation Square
Bicycle had a buckled rear wheel, which I didn’t notice until I was powering along in third gear.
Bicycle 2: Coventry Street
Misaligned handle bars, so I was steering on an angle.
Bicycle 3: Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre
Bike would “”skip”” a gear. Not a big problem unless you’re powering along in 3rd gear and it skips on you.
Bicycle 4: Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre
This one got me all the way home.
Aside from last nights problems, I’ve had a fairly good run with Melbourne Bike Share bicycles. By my estimate and experiences so far, I reckon about 1 in 5 bicycles are faulty.
