Islabikes Beinn 24 Review

Islabikes exude quality and craftsmanship. This UK brand made its way to the US a few years ago and started the stampede of quality kids bike manufactures. They saw the need early and have flushed out a line of kids bikes that even the most discerning Mom and Dad bike snob can be amazed by. […]

Prevelo Alpha Zero Review

This Bike jumps to a top pick. Ticking all the boxes: reverse mounted V-brake, short reach lever, light alloy frame, sealed bearings, low stand over via a step through frame, and fantastic tires, any kid would excel on this little bike. We have put some serious miles on this little ripper of a bike and […]

Hope Kids Bike Academy- Rent your kid’s bike not own

It’s like a subscription service for your kid’s bike. Nice light weight bikes (Early riders for the balance and 16 inch bike) are available for 5-29 GBP/month.

Jack and I are mountain bikers.  Realizing there was a fat/plus size balance bike available from Early Rider made us smile and want one…really bad.  Thanks to the folks at NRG Enterprises, we have got our hands on this little beast of a bike for a couple months to shred the local trails and driveway.

Getting Kids Motivated to Ride Bikes
