By James Haines, Engadgets.com / July 15, 2018 5:31pmIn the past year, a number of bike companies have been hacked and a number have been left without warranty claims.
In this article, we’ll look at a couple of such incidents.
First, a year ago, a bike company named Osprey had an incident that caused them to lose some of their customers.
The company had a problem with their hydraulic brakes, and the hydraulic brakes were not working properly.
In the process, the company’s entire customer base had their warranty claims rejected.
In response, Ospreys owner, Rob Kowalski, announced a recall of their bicycles.
After a bit of a back and forth between the company and their suppliers, Kowalkses company released a new model of the bicycle, and as a result, Oskar’s bicycle was left without a warranty claim.
This incident came just a month after another bike company, Ostera, was hacked and had their bike stolen.
In that case, the theft took place during a bike auction, and Osteras bike was left out in the cold.
Ospreys incident also came just months after Osterawes company had its warranty claims denied, and had to cancel the order and replace parts with the new bikes.
