Inspection of the handlebars and brakes of a Van Raam bicycle
Inspection of the handlebars
While cycling, the handlebars are inspected again (at 1:12). "I inspect the handlebars for excessive free play, the position of the handlebars and the attachment of the handlebars. I also check whether the handlebars are tight enough and whether the position of the brake levers and grips are correct", says van der Linden - Van Sprankhuizen. By making a full turn (movement of the handlebars) to the left and right, the bicycle turns. The control technician inspector listens for any noises and feels whether there is too much resistance.
Inspecting the brakes of a Van Raam bicycle
While inspecting the functioning of the brakes (at 1:21), the control technician listens carefully to the sound and pays attention to the tracking (position of the wheels) during braking. From this, he can tell if the brakes are working properly.
