This picture made me feel quite sad. Couldn't help thinking of the sprog who had fun with their 'scoot-along' bike when the back wheel collapsed and it was just left there. Hope the parents bought them a replacement.

Indeed. The bike has spent rather too long in the sun by the look of it.

Yet another example of product having been designed by an accountant. :(

To be fair though, the wheel would probably have outlasted the child in the UK climate. :rolleyes:

Well I certainly am not going to attempt to out-pun you bunch of Eggheads, I'm not in a frame of mind to do so. But I do agree that this child's abandoned scooter was (as Nigel reflects) probably designed by an account. I had actually walked about 50 metres (yards, to you lot :D) past it before deciding to turn back and picture it on camera but not for canvas as you challenge me, Mark (MJ224) *chr

It may well have initially been picked up from a 'clean up' pile of rubbish by someone less well off to buy one (we did a bit of that when the kids were young) until it gave up & maybe by someone with less of an idea of taking care of things too. :rolleyes:
