Alex replied to AdamM's discussion No more mandatory AS/NZS standard for motorcycle helmets

Alex replied to Dama's discussion Refund policy experience with a recent bike purchase.
"If you argue that the bike isn't able to be ridden on the road because it doesn't have brakes/ reflector then you have to be prepared for the bike shop to turn around and fit brakes and reflectors as a way of rectifying the situation. I…"

Alex replied to Neil Alexander's discussion Is this how we ended up with bicycle helmet laws?
