Lidl - Bike Pump - Rant
Saw on Lidl's website that they have bike pumps for £4.99 - they look great, the exact bit of kit i need. So i travelled 10 miles to my nearest Lidl and bought the pump.
Came home, opened it up and what??? there's no attachment to hook it up to the bike?
Then, i saw a little button saying 'pull' so i taken it off and saw the connections. Could i get them out? NO, virtually impossible. It is impossible with the hands, luckilly i had some specialist tweezers for a computer so i used them and got them out
20 mins later i went back to the bike only to find the connections in the pump DIDNT FIT THE CONNECTION ON THE PUMP ITSELF !!! (nor did they fit on the bike).
It's a pathetic, cheaply made piece of crap that doesn't work. I SERIOUSLY recommend you avoid this product from Lidl at all costs.
I am going to take it back tomorrow (yes, another 20 mile round trip) because the principle of them gaining £4.99 for selling this tosh makes my blood boil.
They could of tested it first? Before it was put on their shelves, they must of had loads of returns because the connection on the pump doesn't fit onto itself!!
Grrrr. anyone else had this problem?
