Hmmm, I've never tried iCandy - so cannot really comment - but looking at your website I think I'd avoid getting one!

I bought an icandy cherry when it was first released, it broke twice within 6 months. There was no way I could get my money back. I paid for a replacement seat, which then broke.

It sits in the garage, dangerous and unusuable looking pristeen, with the new (broken) seat wrapped in the plastic it came in as it stopped working before I could even take it off.

The independent shop I bought it from was not helpful either, probably because they couldnt afford to refund me and didnt care, as it ws obvious they had lost my future custom at that point.

I bought an iCandy Apple, had it over 3 years and the only problem I've ever had is the handlebar foam fraying. Contacted them about it and they couldn't have been more helpful. Hey ho.

We have got an iCandy apple jogger, and only had a small problem with the pin in the front wheel corroding. Took it back to the shop, who lent us an identical replacement, and it was fixed quickly and for free by iCandy. I guess you can have a problem with most brands, sorry to hear you've been so unlucky.
