20" Cannondale Trail SS Bike
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 Single Speed is designed to be easy to push, and very simple to operate. Unless you live in a very hilly area, this bike is ideal. It is certainly easy to operate. Also because they can get up to a higher speed very quickly, itt is easier to get their balance. Of course that also depends on their confidence, not just the bike.
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.
The weight reduction is brought about by using higher quality lighter components. Most high quality kids bikes now have aluminium frames, but these have most components made of aluminium. The additional cost is not as great as you may expect, generally about $50.
