Advantages: Well made, lightweight, good components
Disadvantages: There are cheaper alternatives, but you get what you pay for.
I had heard great things about this company for kids' bikes and so decided to get my son the balance bike (no pedals).
Prices are good for the quality of the item and shipping costs reasonable - quick delivery also.
The build quality is fantastic and the bike very lightweight. It is easy to adjust the height of the saddle. The steering is firm and cannot be turned too far around which provides much needed stability.
Tyres are good quality and there is a nifty back brake which we eventually persuaded our son to use.
He had the bike when he was just 2 and is getting on for 3 now and it has really brought his balance on in leaps and bounds. The only problem we have is self-induced in that we bought him a mini-micro scooter which he can go faster on and so he tends to prefer that sometimes.
All in all a great company and a good product. I will be buying the next stage up once he's ready for it.
