20" Cannondale Trail.
Most kids would favor a bike that is similar to their parents only smaller. The Cannondale Trail has similar appearance to Dad's bike. It is a high quality bike that rides well, and looks as good as Dad's. The bike is also designed to be easier to ride. Cannondale achieve this by using a high quality frame with a careful blend of equipment.
Many of us have been disappointed in the past over the weight of kids bikes. Often the kids bikes are almost as heavy as your adult bike. Certainly makes it far less enjoyable for the kids, and we are generally trying to entice them away from the TV or computer games.
The Cannondale Trail is lighter and easier to push. The bike is tough, designed to handle the treatment dished out by kids, but still be easy to pedal.The gear range is wider than most kids bikes and will certainly be a benefit when off-road. It is fitted with reliable Suntour suspension and disc brakes.
We have some test ride facilities within the shop, and the smiles are definitely bigger, and the enthusiasm greater. We invite you to bring the kids and let them try a few different bikes, you will be able to see for yourself how much more they enjoy riding once they find the right bike for them.
Most high quality kids bikes now have aluminium frames, but these bikes also have most of the components made of aluminium. The additional cost is not as great as you may expect, generally about $100.
