“It was a Christmas gift and the first day we took him out in the courtyard, he just pedalled. He had a balance bike for 18 months and was out all the time, so I suppose he will be out on this in the future.”

They were looking for something lighter than the usual fare. “It’s light,” said the father. “Weight is a big difference for a kid. A bike of 10kg is like a 40kg bike for us.” Personally, I loved the “early rider” branding.
