I bought this based on reviews on a bike forum site. A lot of people take 10-12" wheeled metal pedal bikes, remove the cranks, and cover the bike with padding to recreate this idea. The bike is simply two wheels, a saddle, frame, fork, and bars. The idea of modifying a pedal bike is good, this thing is great.
The problem with stripping down a metal pedal bike is the weight and the potential danger in a crash. The Skuut bike is feather-light and it won't cause bruises and bumps after a fall like a metal bike. There are no spokes to bruise or break little hands or feet. The bars wont turn sharply (they will only sweep about 40-50 degrees), so a wipeout is pretty difficult. Even the ends of the bars are brilliantly designed to prevent harm to tender little bodies.
Another plus is how adjustable it is. When lowered all the way down, it is still a little big for a young two year old. If you flip the frame (just move the fork and saddle to the other side of the frame) it changes the "head tube" angle and saddle height so that it is low-slung enough for even the shortest legs. There is a ton of adjustability, so I imagine it could fit a tall 20-month old up to a 4-5 year old.
The build quality is just OK. It is a Chinese item, which is why it doesn't cost as much as the German Like-A-Bikes made with non-slave wage labor. It isn't as strong as the $250 Like-A-Bike, but it costs 1/3 as much. It does what it was designed to do well, and is a good value for the $$$.Read more ›
After 6 months, however, the hardware that holds the wheels on the bike came loose and we lost a piece of the hardware. The hardware holding each wheel on the bike includes several small pieces -- screws that you tighten with a monkey wrench, spacers, tiny brass rings and one long bolt. We tried contacting Skuut by email and by phone, we tried our local bike shop, the hardware store (to see if we could match the parts) and a local REI (who carries the bike) to see if they would help us get the needed part or fix the bike for us, but to no avail. No one wanted to take responsibility for a bike we assembled ourselves (Skuut sends it to you unassembled) or, if they did want to help us, they were unable to obtain parts or even a response from Skuut, like us.
So, we have a very cute and cool bike that my eager 3-year old can no longer ride because no one services this bike. REI offered to give us a brand new Skuut if we had purchased the bike there, but sadly, we bought the bike online and were out of luck. So, if you're buying this bike, either buy it from a local store that promises to service the bike for you, or else tighten up the hardware every chance you get. This bike does not hold together like a regular bike. I'm very disappointed with Skuut and their non-response to our requests for parts.
I ordered the second bike to "live" in Oregon. This one arrived with the front wheel very un-true, or wobbly, to the point that it affected steering, and my toddler couldn't make the bike go straight. This was REALLY disappointing, as we had to launch "project return item" right after assembling it, and my toddler is now waiting...
Project "return item" is ongoing, but there is a steering pin that gets assembled, and once in, can't be removed, so there is no way to put this thing back in its orginial box. I contacted the manufacturer, and am waiting on a response, but to me this is just something that is now eating up my time, and my toddler is missing out on sunny riding days (something we treasure in Oregon).
So, I think it's great if you can buy one of these from a store and inspect it first. Buying it online, while cheaper, is a gamble, and the manufacturer needs to step up their Quality Control.

We think this is adorable! Our daughter is pretty short, so we will try flipping the middle bar as another reviewer suggested. But we love this bike!Published 3 days ago by Adrienne Fletcher
Love this but my grandson is not tall enough for it. I wish the reviews had given a height requirement.Published 19 days ago by Rubs

Its cute and my son did a great job on it. Only complaint is that the front tire does not turn well and can make it hard to handle when going fast. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kw
