    Shiva: Difficult to setup brakes

    The assembly process was a bit tedious since the front brake setup was complicated. Unfortunately, I am still not able to setup the front brakes in a safe manner.


    Guardian Bikes

    Hi Shiva! Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that the setup didn't go smoothly! I would love to help with this and make sure your new bike is setup in tip-top shape. Would you please email us a few photos of the front of your new bike so we can take a look and give you some assistance? -Laura @Guardian Bikes

    Good, except for front brake

    The bike was easy to put together, but the left side of the front brake is staying against the tire causing friction. I don’t know what to do about this. I’ve had this issue with other bikes in the past, that’s why I chose this bike. I didn’t think I’d have this issue.

    Hi Ben, Please send us an email at [email protected]. We are happy to take a look and help adjust the front brake. We can help over email or facetime.

    Trouble with Breaks

    My son loves the bike but I had a great deal of trouble putting the breaks together. I called guardian and received virtual help but I'm not sure if I fastened the breaks properly. I shuffled a great deal of break wires from the back wheel in order to correct the breaks and it ended up looking pretty sloppy. The bike is expensive and the breaks are the biggest reason I buy guardians but I think having to put the breaks together myself is not dependable and I have no real way to know if I did it correctly. The company gave me a $50 refund for the hassle but I live in NYC and if my 8 year old is unable to stop in the city due to breaks that would be terrible.

    Enjoying bike. Problem with gear shifter

    My son has really enjoyed the bike. This week we started having issues with the shifter in the back wheel. When he would try to go to the largest spoke, the chain would pop off. When he shifted to a smaller spoke, the chain would get back on and work properly. Now, since yesterday, the pedals will not even rotate. I am frustrated since I know nothing about fixing bikes. I am going to have to take it somewhere to be fixed. Otherwise, we like the bike.

    Front brakes not working

    The bike arrived 20 days after it was ordered. Seems like a king time to get a bike delivered. The front brakes did not work, the instructional video did not help, the "noodle" was installed by Guardian incorrectly. I had to take it to a bike shop and leave it there for a couple of days. I hope they can put the brake together correctly, because whoever tried to do that at Guardian bikes did it incorrectly.

    Hi Seth, Thank you for the review. Can you send us some photos of the bike to [email protected]? Sorry, for any confusion. Your bike was on pre-order. Apologies, for the wait. You can also send us your bike shop receipt and we will reimburse you. Sam@ Guardianbikes
