Good design, low quality materials
on April 30, 2008
We have twin 2.5 year old girls. So we got 2 trikes. The Girls are still a little young for it even at the lowest setting. They are very slightly on the tall side for their age. Probably in another 3 months they will be peddling around.
Quality is only so-so.
As the label on the bike says: "designed in USA, made in China".
The design for this bike is pretty good. But every every effort has been made to save money on the parts. There are little things that indicate a lack of attention to detail: low quality hardware, washers that are the wrong size, I had to use some of my own washers in order to properly bolt the main frame to the step otherwise the supplied screws just pass through.
You have to really crank on the steering wheel screw in order to get it to stay in place. Also, the steering wheel on one of the bikes won't go perfectly straight.
The tires that were supplied are not true on the wheel. They are a little warped.
All that said, when this trike is on sale it is worth it. They do seem solid enough. And I like the old school design.
