Coroners report - David Molloy

March 19, 2019

 David Molloy - front fork failure


The sudden and catastrophic failure of 20-year-old front forks led to the death of an Ocean Grove rider, the Victorian Coroner has found.

 

The forks collapsed when David Keith Malloy, 64, was riding with a group in good riding conditions on 13th Beach Road at Barwon Heads, and it is believed a foreign object may have impacted the forks.

 

The coroners report again bring the 'safe life' of a bicycle into the spotlight following the 2017 Coroners report into the death of Richard Stanton.

 

The critical elements for the industry are;


- clients have their bicycles fully inspected after any fall or incident
- retailers inform consumers that bicycles have a finite lifespan and must be serviced appropriately
- Retailers maintain accurate records on all bicycles they service
- Wholesalers should update manuals to include information stating that bicycles have a finite lifespan.
