HELP: Halfords Kids Bike Policy
I've bought a 24' kids bike for my son couple of weeks back.
My son was complaining about front break being very stiff since the day we bought it. I thought it would resolve itself as it was a new bike. But it only became worse.
So I took the bike to halfords today and explained them. They had a look and said that my son would have crashed and damaged the wheel which caused misalignment in the wheel.
He was just riding the bike only in our cul-de-sac street in my watch. This problem was clearly there since we bought it. Therefore I would like to know what's my rights here. I'm still within 28 days return policy.
I would really appreciate your feedback.
