- Do not use the cargo bike if excessive wear or loose screw connections are present.
- Have the cargo bike checked immediately by a Carqon dealer if excessive wear, loose screw connections, cracks, deformities or color changes are present.
Replacing worn components
As with all mechanical components, cargo bikes are exposed to wear and high levels of strain. Different materials may react differently to wear or degradation caused by exposure to strain. All types of cracks, stretch marks and color changes might show that the service life of the components has expired. Worn components must be replaced in order to ensure safety.
Wear to components made from aluminium or composite materials can only be assessed by a Carqon dealer. The inner structure of the material can be changed to its detriment without this being visible.
Note: Have your Carqon checked immediately by a Carqon dealer if excessive wear is present.
