electrical bike Rose Bikes Stops Promoting Bikes within the UK On account of Brake Lever Legal guidelines
Germany’s Rose Bikes has introduced it’s going to cease promoting bikes within the UK market on account of legal guidelines dictating which aspect brake levers should be fitted on full bikes.
The information was initially broken by road.cc earlier this week who noticed an e mail despatched to a possible buyer asserting the modifications. Right this moment, Rose Bikes has launched an announcement confirming the information and explaining the explanations for it exiting the UK market.
Within the UK, market requirements and legal guidelines dictate that bikes bought will need to have the entrance brake operated by a lever on the best hand aspect of the bars and the rear brake by a lever on the left hand aspect of the bars.
Whereas Rose beforehand supplied a la carte fashion bike constructing, the place clients might decide and select elements to finish their builds, they’re at the moment within the means of streamlining that and shifting in direction of commonplace specced fashions. Rose claims this may guarantee quicker supply instances for purchasers however we’ve little question that it’s also a less expensive strategy to run issues for Rose too.
Throughout this transitional interval, Rose has determined to cease promoting to the UK because it at the moment units all its bikes up the opposite method spherical and “putting in the brake cables and brake levers on the other aspect would require the kind of particular resolution for the UK that we merely can’t realise proper now.”

Assertion: Rose Bikes
As a few of you may have already observed, we just lately needed to discontinue the meeting and delivery of ROSE bikes for the UK. This was a tough choice for us, so we need to take a while to elucidate it to you.
Within the UK, bicycles are constructed in a different way than in the remainder of Europe: the market requirements and legal guidelines in Nice Britain, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Eire clearly convey that the entrance brake lever should be mounted on the right-hand aspect of the handlebar and the rear brake lever on the left-hand aspect. For the remainder of Europe, it’s the actual reverse.
With the technical complexity of our bikes rising, we face the ever-growing problem of having the ability to provide reasonably priced Rose bikes with a excessive degree of high quality and security. And since we need to shorten our supply instances for our clients, this summer time we determined to progressively shut down the configuration of bikes, in order that we’re capable of preserve our common requirements. Putting in the brake cables and brake levers on the other aspect would require the kind of particular resolution for the UK that we merely can’t realise proper now.
We would like to have the ability to assure every Rose bike rider that they’re sitting on a secure bike and hold the identical degree of high quality. As quickly as we’re executed with the transition in our manufacturing and get extra readability about the way forward for doing enterprise with the UK, we are going to search for a long-term resolution. As a result of we hope to quickly be capable of provide our bikes once more to the UK and its very important market.
Till then, you’ll be able to nonetheless discover our bikes on www.rosebikes.com and in our shops in Germany and Switzerland. We’re hoping in your understanding.
