    I'm not arguing about whether you might be able to fix a chain, only about whether availability in bike shops matters if you're in the wilds of west virginia

    The IKEA Sladda has been recalled due to cases of the belt by Continental snapping.

    Interesting recall. The site says no injuries have been reported. Only 4,900 bikes sold. I wonder how often the belts are breaking to warrant a recall.

    On Reddit one of the affected customers reported there were 11 cases. SRAM stopped making the 2-speed automatix IGH so the bike has not been sold for a couple of months but you can still buy the Sladda bicycle trailer at IKEA.
