When you pay £89 for a bike from a catalogue shop you shouldnt expect the forks to be the right way round. Supermarkets often display bikes this way but the mistake rarely makes it into print...

Rakes progress

The current Index catalogue features this £89 Universal Rampage with its rigid forks pointing in the wrong direction. And this was no hastily taken studio shot, the photographer has taken the bike to a rugged, rocky location and then photographed it.

The mistakenly assembled bike was spotted by Ian Lennox of the Lex Cycle Company of Worthing.

This is a serious safety issue. I have informed Index, writes Lennox in a letter to BikeBiz, adding, This is a lesson [for consumers] to use IBDs [and not catalogues].
