Prevelo Zulu Three Review

    When Prevelo bikes first hit the market this spring, we were most interested in their lightweight mountain bikes. Real bikes for kids with shocks and built for trail riding are hard to find, especially ones that aren’t super heavy. While we do love the Prevelo Alpha Three, it was the Zulu Three that has changed […]

    Prevelo Alpha 3 Review

      Prevelo Bikes are the newest lightweight bikes built specifically for kids on the market. They aren’t just a scaled down version of adult bikes, but instead with intentional kid-friendly geometry and components.   P (age 6 and wearing a size 5t pant) has been riding the 20″ Alpha 3 extensively over the past 6 weeks […]

        Stampede Bikes Charger 12″ Bike Review

          The Stampede Charger 12″ (also available in a 16″ and 16″XL size) is one of our favorite balance bikes for young riders. It is beefy and tough, without being too heavy (our 25 pound 2.5 year old can easily handle it on her own).   The geometry of the bike allows riders to have a […]

          Frog 52 Bike Review

            Frog Bikes, out of the UK, just hit the U.S. market this week! Specializing in lightweight bikes built specifically for kids, they sell balance bikes, hybrid, road and track bikes (though not all models are yet available in the United States.) You can NOT purchase these bikes online because they¬†always prefer that families buy Frog […]

            Stampede Bikes Sprinter 16″ Bike Review

              Having a really great kids bike is pivotal to successful riding for many kids….but sometimes the price tag is really hard to swallow. We were thrilled to discover the Sprinter 16″ bike from Stampede Bikes (formally TykesBykes).   The Sprinter is lightweight, has dual hand brakes (so no coaster!) and a great geometry for riding. […]

              Pello Revo 16″ Bike

                The Pello Revo is an excellent US-built 16″ bike boasting kid-specific geometry, a lightweight frame and the most aggressive tires we’ve seen on a kid bike. Because of the fact that it comes with coaster brakes AND a rear wheel hand-brake, it’s a great bike for new riders coming right off a balance bike or […]

                Islabikes Beinn 24 Review

                  The Islabikes Beinn is an 8 speed, lightweight (just 19.4 pounds) bike made specifically for kids aged ~ 7+ (inseam 22.5″; height 55″). It is intended to be an all-around bike, for riding both the paved roads and the trails.   Islabikes have obviously put a lot of thought into this bike to make it […]

                  Islabikes Rothan Review

                    Balance bikes are THE best investment you can make for an active toddler. The Rothan from Islabikes is a top pick from us for various reasons: -Very lightweight (7.7 pounds) -Pneumatic tires which means great traction on changing road conditions -Small grip handle bars AND hand brake allow even petite hands to confidently brake. -Comfortable […]

                    Cleary Hedgehog 16″ Bike Review

                      The Cleary Hedgehog is a simple (1 speed), yet quality bike built specifically for kids. Available in six different colors, the Hedgehog has a slim saddle to prevent chafing, easy-to-use hand brakes made for small hands and weighs just 16 pounds.   We strongly believe in the investment of lightweight, quality bikes for kids and […]
