Strength:

Frame quality seems good. Looks good.

Weakness:

The list - it's crazy heavy. Surprising amount of resistance just to rotate the crank with the bike upside down (resistance seems to come from the bottom bracket). Zero rotation in the rear wheel after petal stroke, if you spin the rear wheel it will stop immediately. Headset feels rough to rotate.

The quality of this bike is poor. This product does nothing for the reputation of Specialized. We love our riding and where keen to get a quality kids bike. This isn't it. My advise to other parents would be to stick with the balance bike or go another brand. I'm concerned this product will turn my child away from riding. If you want to steer away from Chinese junk this is to be avoided.

Give your little tyke a lightweight bike that looks and feels like a real bike. Couldn't find another bike like this with an aluminum frame and shook my head lifting those other heavy steel anchors of bikes. Get it!!

A well built kids bike, Looks really cool. My kid liked it

Weakness:

Kinda heavy for a little bike I suppose

A good bike for a 2-3 Year old. Just picked up a 16 inch version for his 4th b-day.
found both bikes used for $40 and $50 at LBS's. They are out there, if you look hard.
