Strengths:    Good design for kids, low stepover to allow smaller kids to ride a 24 inch bike. Adjustments should allow bike to be used for more years.

Weaknesses:    Front fork has limited travel, and little give for smaller kids. No way to adjust, and has been squeaking after some moderate riding. Bike also had a plastic cover on front sprocket, which broke off after one day going over logs.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent bike for kids to use as a upgrade from 20" models. Has greater gear range, better quality components, etc. While may be impractical $wise, but seems that adjustable fork is even more important for kids as style of riding and weight differences are so substantial.

I tried looking it up on Bikepedia but can't find anything. I've heard that it's heavy... so was thinking about swapping out for some leftover grouwn-up bike parts. But I've also read that the handlebar and seatpost diameters might not be the same as the grown-up bikes. Any experience? I'll have i ... Read More »
