Bike for a 4 year old? Anything cheaper than an islabike?
3

PourquoiTuGachesTaVie · 11/05/2014 08:18

Ds has been doing really well on his balance bike so for his birthday I'd like to upgrade him to pedals.

In an ideal world I'd go for an Islabike or a Frog bike but funds are tight and where I live there just isn't a second hand market for them so I can't find any on eBay within collecting distance.

Is there another option for a lightweight children's bike?

Ds "cycled" 6 miles yesterday on his balance bike with dh and I on our bikes and he kept up brilliantly (we obviously weren't going very fast!). I don't want to lumber him with a cheap bike that is too heavy and unmanageable for that kind of ride at his age.

Ridgeback is another make you could look at. Or maybe Dawes?

Thanks I'll have a look into that. Smile

Anymore suggestions?
