Submitted by Matt Sakko from Jeffreys Bay

Date Reviewed: May 24, 2008

Strengths:    Very Sturdy Frame! Taken it down 7 meter drops and it's still going strong, Training wheels keep it steady on the corners. would be a good buy for man united players.

Weaknesses:    Knees always touch the handle bar. and lost a training wheel at whistler which cost me 11 dollars.

Bottom Line:   
I strongly reccomend it for Christiano Ronaldo, but if you're not gay then buy the Barney fun pedlar.

Date Reviewed: May 5, 2008

Strengths:    Good quality

Weaknesses:    Very heavy 9.5 kg!!! Comparing to adult weight that would be 40 kg bike for 70 kg rider!

Bottom Line:   
My daughter (3) can ride without the wheelies and this bike is heavy for her. She can not control it when not riding. She can not pick it up. I am buying a lighter bike for her.

Submitted by Kawena a Weekend Warrior from Honolulu, HI

Date Reviewed: February 21, 2006

Strengths:    Full Chain Guard, Low Standover Height Frame, Back and Front Fenders, Ergonomic Handlebars, Safty Pads on Handlebars and Neck, Cool Paint and Bar-end Streamers

Bottom Line:   
I created a list before shopping for my son's first bike. My list included, low stand-over frame, full chain guard, steel rims, safety padding and back and front fenders. I then looked at Specilized, Trek, Giant and Gary Fisher bikes, limiting my search to "Premium" brands. Every model I looked at lacked something from my list, until I came across the Tiger. It had everthing on the list and looked pretty cool to boot (Gotta love the streamers!). Great value, compared to the other bikes I listed. The research paid off, with smiles from my 3 year old, everytime he rides it.

Submitted by tIM from Cumming, GA USA

Date Reviewed: October 2, 2005

Strengths:    Indestructible

Weaknesses:    Heavy, but that might not be bad for a kid's bike

Bottom Line:   
My son loves this bike. He rides it for hours at a time and it runs strong. The brakes work well and that's important for a 3 year old. The training wheels are adjustable so it's a good bike for teaching purposes.
