A sample size of one is not statistically significant. My personal experience with one bike could be an outlier. I do not claim it is representative. If you have one experience with an airline or drycleaner, that does not mean everyone else will share that experience. But if you go out to eat at a new place, or on a blind date, and have a bad experience you probably will not want to increase your sample size. That is what happened to me.
