Bike Folk (do you know how hard it was not to type twats?) - help needed for children's bike


#1

My mother (against my fucking wishes) bought my son a bike a while back. We had gone toddle bike, balance bike and then when we removed the stabilisers from this he could ride within 15 minutes. It works.

But he’s not really interested in riding it anymore because it is heavy as fuck, shit on grass, pretty crap on gravelly stuff and tough up hills.

He’s a tall five year old, would like it to last him a while, don’t mind spending a bit of cash… what should I get him?

Frog bike? Is that a thing. I heard someone say it once.

Not sure the bike lot on here know anything about bikes, they just seem to talk about lycra and hats. try realcyclists.com


#8

but yeah considering you can get an alright adults bike for the same cash, the prices are silly

as @grievoustim says, frog might be better (I just had a look, they are much cheaper and a bit lighter)


#9

Yeah I was thinking £250ish

Also on the Frog website it says buy it from a shop so that the engineers and shit can do whatever shit they do.

So I can’t just have it delivered?


#15

?


#16

(If you get it delivered you’ll just need to straighten handlebars, put saddle and pedals on, that’s it I expect)


#17

I can do that.

Can’t believe they don’t set up the gears! Outrageous.
