I really liked FirstBIKE product so I am very thankful the lowering kit was an option.

Very helpful kit as it brings the bike much closer to the ground by about a couple of inches.

There is a very good video on the Firstbike website that shows how to correctly put it on.

The lowering kit lowers the bike by 2 inches I think. My 2 year old who is a little smaller than average (25% for her age group) got the Firstbike with the lowering kit for her birthday. Her feet can still not properly touch the ground, so I think it takes another 2 months before she can use it. Like the bike, the kit is made of good materials without any sharp edges. The kit comes with some fairly poor instructions with pics that are too dark to see and also actual errors in the description. For example, it says to leave the disc brake to the frame when taking the rear wheel off. The disc brake is attached to the wheel and should stay there. It should have taken 10 minutes to put together but was all messed up due to me not being able to decipher the instructions and my husband putting it all together based on his 'engineering' background. Yes, it is possible to put the lowering kit on in several different ways that are not going to work. There is a very good video on the Firstbike website that shows how to correctly put it on. BTW, when I accidentally swapped the almost identical looking nut from the lowering kit with the rear wheel pin nut, the wheel did not run that smoothly. Even though there are very few parts, follow the right instructions.

BTW, the current price on Amazon is $30. I paid less than half of that with the purchase of the bike at an independent small shop. Bike price was also lower, free shipping, great advice and no tax to boot. Don't know why Amazon sells it at such an inflated price.

I purchased this kit for my son's FirstBIKE Cross and installed it in 5 minutes with the help of the YouTube video. My son is 19 months old, is 34 inches tall, and is wearing 18-24 months and 2T clothing, and this kit makes it so he can just sit on the bike. He is really still a little too small for it, but in a few months his feet should be flat on the ground, as they should be.

The instructions make the installation seem more complicated than it is, so watching the video is worthwhile. A word of warning though, in case any of you come to the end of the installation wondering as I did where the highest notch is on the bike frame to reconnect things: It's under the sticker! I looked at my son's bike and said to myself "There is only one notch, and it's the highest one." Then I realized that the guy in the video is showing the bike without the sticker to cover the lower notch, and that it is there. I was thinking there for a minute that my model was missing something.

I'm glad that this minor adjustment can be made to the bike so that my son can use it longer. With any luck we should be able to get at least 3 summers of use out of it before we get him a 16" pedal bike.

The lowering kit does give the additional inches but my tall son at 35 inches (18 months) wasn't quite tall enough for the bike.

Got an inch or more for my 12 months old daughter. Should have come with a bike for the price of $170.

The lowering kit lowered the seat from about 14 inches down to 12.

My daughter is 23 months old and is about 31 inches tall. With the lowering kit the tips of her toes touch the ground. She's not tall enough yet for her whole foot to be flat on the ground while seated. She's on the small side for a 2 year old, but I would guess most 2 year olds will require the lowering kit to be installed in order to be able to use the bike.

I have no issues with the product itself. It does what it is advertised to do and the quality seems to be in line with the bike itself, which is good.

As other reviews have pointed out, the instructions are not great. Specifically, it is difficult to figure out how to align and attach the left and right brackets. It is also not obvious that the brake has a specific circular insert when reattaching the frame. The good news however, is that their video on their website (or YouTube) is very good and makes the installation easy. In other words, DON'T READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, WATCH THE VIDEO INSTEAD!

My other gripe is that there isn't an option to buy the bike and lowering kit together as a combo. It would be great if instead of paying $12 for a lowering kit, that you could buy the bike plus the lowering kit at some slightly discounted rate (for example $8 above the regular bike price). It would be even better if the lowering kit came installed as part of the combo.

My package did not include the allen wrench and instead came with two unnecessary (I hope) washers. This wasn't really a big problem for me since I had the right size wrench in my toolbox but could have been a big problem. I'm optimistic though that this was just a problem with my order and not a common occurrence, but I thought I'd mention it in case someone else has the same packaging problem.

I bought FirstBIKE's for my twin boys' 3rd birthday. One of the boys is 36", one is 35". The lowering kit worked perfect. I know if we had them try it without it fitting them correctly, they would have gotten a bad first impression. I really liked FirstBIKE product so I am very thankful the lowering kit was an option. The kit is made of quality materials without any sharp edges just like the bike. As another person stated, I would recommend watching the video on the FirstBIKE website. My husband is pretty mechanical and had a piece on wrong based on the instructions, but the video helped him immediately.
