We looked at a lot of bikes when trying to pick one out for our 2.5 year old son. We were getting it for him for Christmas and since we live in an area with pretty nasty winters, we knew he wouldn't get much use out of it until Spring and Summer. We couldn't quite decide between a 12" or a 14" because the 14" seemed like he would never grow into it. But, since we knew kids grow fast and it would sit for several months, we opted for the 14". The reason we bought the Jeep bike is because of several reasons. 1) my son likes Jeeps and we have owned several Jeep vehicles, so we like the brand 2) the colors and design were nice. Not too over the top but fun and bright for kids. 3) we didn't really like some of the "character" bikes on the market and there are not many other options for 14" bikes without characters. There were no reviews on this bike when we bought it so we took a chance on the quality.

We received it in a big box and my husband and his dad put it together. It was easy to assemble and only took a few basic tools to do so and not much time at all. The components seemed higher in quality then some other bikes we looked at, which was a plus. It even has a suspension fork! Another nice component to point out is the hand brake. I don't recall if all starter bikes have this, but we like that we can teach our son to easy both hand and pedal brakes at a young age. The training wheels fit nicely and are quite smooth and do not rattle like I remember training wheels of the past doing.

My son was so thrilled to get this bike on Christmas morning. He calls it his "big bike". While he could barely reach the pedals at the lowest seat height setting (and there is a good range of seat heights) in December, now he can pedal like a pro and the bike fits him perfectly with a lot of room to grow.

We definitely recommend this bike to parents looking for a quality product at a reasonable price. And if you are trying to decide if a 14" is a better size to start off with then a 12", we think it is. It has worked out nicely for our 3-year old.

Only by a slim chance, I decided to go with this bike instead of the 16" version. I try to be very practical in my purchases with my son. I want to give him not only something that he will enjoy but also something of quality that he can grow into and which will last for a couple years or so.

He's a pinch under 36" tall. So with the seat slammed down to the base and the pedal coming down to its farthest point, I hoped that his legs would reach. And I tell you,...it JUST did! If I would have bought the larger bike, it would just be sitting in a corner somewhere, untested!

Back to the bike,... everything is solid with the mechanics and workmanship of the bike. With only exception to the brake calipers, it all was a breeze to put together as most of it did come pre-assembled. The hand brakes was a small pain because it takes adjustments in a couple areas to get it just right enough. The instructions weren't the greatest at all in explaining it. So you know what I did?? YouTube! Done!

The bike has strong, tough rubber tires, plastic on the training wheels, reliable handlebar grips, and a good leather seat. Lastly, which wasn't a big issue for me...no kickstand for those post-training wheel days. If you're handy enough, I think that I spotted a place where an aftermarket kickstand may be installed, but it'll probably take a drill hole into the metal to make it happen.

Good luck! Any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

We bought this bike for my son's 4th bday. He was around 40.5" but his toes still couldn't quite touch the ground at the lowest seat level. We had to put the bike together ourselves and at first the pedals kept spinning off and the training wheels kept unscrewing themselves. We had to put them on super duper tight to prevent them from falling off every time he rode them. The bike is also very heavy compared to the other bikes we saw at toysrus. He's almost 5 now and riding the bike without its training wheels but the bike still makes him stagger sometimes when he comes to a stop and it falls a bit to the side. This bike is really sturdy and durable though. The decorations are well applied and the paint doesn't look like it's going to chip anytime soon. Overall, the quality of this bike is fairly good but I would rather have gotten a lighter bike. A lighter bike would be easier for him to handle and prevent accidents from happening.

my 2.5yr old LOVED it, too big for him though so we had to use the training wheels cause he cant reach the floor yet. It is also a bit heavy, which will be great when hes a little older. Sturdy and strong, has taken many beatings and falls already-- our 6yr old neighbor is too big for it, but likes to ride it too.

very good quality bike and i'm sure will last through my 4 yr old and his younger siblings. HOWEVER it is very heavy and tough to push the pedals for a beginner. Maybe a little too heavy to learn on but a good one to graduate to. If your 3/4/5 yr old is not big (and mine is) then probably not the best choice.

Love this bike and my 2yr old (now 3) is close to being done with training wheels because of it.
I read some other reviews about it being heavy, but I bought anyway and was not disappointed. Once the little one gets used to it it's worth buying ahead a bit. I bought this one so it'd last him 4-5 yrs vs a 12in and be done in a year or a 16 and be too big for another year.

Great product all around and most of the negatives I read seem to be either users with little basic bike mechanic experience or a defective/damaged product. That doesn't mean folks don't have valid complaints, but review the product NOT the experience and give your stars based on that vs knowledge; unfair to the product.

Received package closed and not damaged. Opened the box found that bike was not used and new, but frame had scratch on the right and dent on the left. pre-assembled steering hold down cover was missing one of the washers and on bolt out of four was loose inside the box. Fork was manufactured to small front wheel did not fit. I had to use force to create more space between side of the fork so wheel would fit. Finally after I assembled it, I flipped it upside down to test the way the crank and rear wheel is spinning and found: clicking noise from the crank and rear wheel does not spin freely. Overall = Poor quality.

I ordered this bike for my 3-years old as his starter bike. I did read a bunch of reviews on other starter bikes and this one seemed the best combination between price, quality and design. Some of the reviews warned about the bike's weight but so did the reviews of other bikes, and I figured it could not be much different than the rest of the bunch. Knowing to expect a heavy product, I was nonetheless shocked when I lifted the box for the first time. The reason for the weight is the heavy steel tubing used for the frame. The frame is extra thick, unnecessarily so and even has a reinforcement bar in the middle which is a complete waste of space and material. My guess is that the designer in China was trying to make this bike look like an older boy's bike. It also looks good in pictures. However, a larger size mountain-bike would have used aluminum in the frame instead of heavy steel. The bike is very sturdy, but with that heavy frame very impractical in design.

More design flaws:

1. The pedals are as cheap and heavy as it gets;
2. The support wheels are made of cheap, hard, black plastic. It doesn't look bad in the picture, but in reality it causes the support wheels to make a bad rattling noise whenever they touch the pave;
3. The front shock absorber is completely unnecessary on a starter bike;
4. The tire tread is some weird waffle pattern whereas is should have been parallel grooves for a smoother ride and better stability. Right now these look like tractor tires on a little kids bike. My kid is not going to run a downhill mountain-bike challenge in this thing to need a heavy-duty frame and tires.

The positives:

1. The bike came very well packaged;
2. Assembly was easier right out of the box. I expected to have to work on it longer, but it actually came together fairly easy. Some reviewers warned about bad quality control and missing parts, but mine came with everything and I had no issues putting it together. I did not need to even look at the instruction manual;
3. When I look at the assembled bike, it looks great. The color scheme, the Jeep decals and everything else comes together in a good-looking boys bike. My 3-year old will love it. I won't tell him that it could have been much lighter and easier to maneuver.
