Rated 3 out of 5 by gaspasser Typical kids bike - slightly disappointing
Our 6 year old loves this bike, because it's pink, there's a flowery print on the saddle and it has a bell. And it does work more or less as you would expect. When she peddles the wheels go round.
Frame wise it's acceptable, but the components are a horror show. The brakes are adult sized, but cheaper and less functional than I have seen on any adult bike, the levers are too far away from the bars for her hands to reach, and plastic housing on the springs, that seem to nullify any adjustments.
So it's been upgraded to shimano v-brakes and tektro junior levers, and some soft pink mushroom grips, in place of the horrible hard plastic grips it came with. so at least she can ride in comfort and stop safely.
