poor adjustment

PostedMay 9, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought these stabilisers but couldn't adjust them to the correct height because of the lack of slotted holes. Your bike will have to exactly suit one of the five bolt hole positions or they wont fit. Well made and sturdy but poor design.

'Universal'??!

PostedApril 10, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
The stabilisers arrived promptly, and my friend (an experienced bike mechanic) and I assumed that fitting them on my son's bike would be a quick job.
The bike is a Raleigh with 14" wheels, so it seemed reasonable to assume that 'Raleigh Universal Stabilisers' for 14-20 inch wheels would do the job, but no... The rear-wheel axle was not long enough to offer enough thread for the standard fitting, and we couldn't use the alternative 'BMX-style' fitting either as the gap between the holes on the frame was slightly too big for the bracket supplied.
My son was desperate to go on his bike so we managed to bodge a solution together (safely!) using some spare parts that I had lying around.
In short, these Raleigh stabilisers were not suitable for a standard Raleigh child's bike.

Pros: Good value, Good quality
Stabilisers bought for bike with 20" wheels for granddaughter. Excellant quality, very sturdy. Not suitable for a bike with gears however.

These stabilisers did not fit the bike we bought!

PostedFebruary 24, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Unfortunately, whilst these may be good stabilisers, although I asked for ones which fit the bike, they didn't! Which meant I had a rather disappointed little 4 year old boy on Christmas day who couldn't ride his brand new bike.... not best pleased.
However, my husband went to our local Evans in Woking a few days later and they exchanged them straight away so all's well that ends well.
