This bike has been ridden for less than 4 months by a 2.5 year old and can no longer be used. I am VERY disappointed in the quality of the skuut bike. Time to get another brand.
2 stars because my kid loved it so much, but really 1 is more deserving.
- great value for the money: less than 1/3 the cost of the German Like-a-Bike, acceptable build quality for the price
- pneumatic tires with excellent tread & grip (Beware of lowest-end balance bikes with hard plastic wheels that do not offer adequate grip while cornering)
- "disc" wheels (no spokes to catch small feet)
- good grips
- great for smaller children: another reviewer had the BRILLIANT idea of flipping the frame upside down to accomodate children under 3 years of age. Wish I'd thought of that for my firstborn!
- limited seat mast extension: I had to drill an additional hole in the wooden seat mast to extend it to accomodate my eldest as she grew beyond ~44" at age 5. The Smart Balance bike, for example, has a seat that extends at least 1" further than the stock drillings on the Skuut.
- our 2-year old Skuut came with a fabric seat cover & thin foam padding (denser, closed-cell foam and a weather/scuff-proof vinyl cover would be much better idea)
- bolts cut into curved plywood surfaces. If I could do it over again, I would have placed larger washers between the plywood frame and the bolt heads and the mounting hardware for the seat-mast and rear wheel. The $300 Like-a-Bike undoubtedly uses sturdier plywood, but for $0.60 at your local hardware store, you can purchase washers that will prevent the bolt heads from digging into the wood as you tighten them to proper clamping tension.
- finish quality: I smoothed out some of the rougher cut edges on the plywood with 200 grit sandpaper.
Our Skuut is now being used by my 35lb 3-year old, and is still hugely popular with my 6 year-old and her friends, all in the 40-50lb range.
We have had no durability issues whatsoever, but I will qualify this by saying ours has been ridden largely on smooth, paved surfaces, never been left out in the rain, and our girls do not abuse their riding toys by dropping them, ghost-riding, etc.
Mileage may vary!
At the beginning it was a bit high for my daughter, so when I assembled it I put the main body (The one with Skuut written on) upside down, that way it arched down instead of up and gave my daughter a shorter seat, and it worked perfectly
My child was happy to unpack it and help me assemble it, taking about 15-20 minutes to tighten all the screws and pump air into the tires. Once the bike was ready she hoped on and the first thing she noticed was the lack of pedals. Realizing she wasn't going to move very fast by awkwardly walking with the bike she quickly lost interest. I wasn't about to give up so quickly so I encouraged her to get back on even if it meant bending down and helping her balance and pushing her along. Eventually I figured out to hold the handlebar and pull her along while she raised her feet off the ground, "skuuting" and gliding. This picked her interest and soon enough started to first walk, then run with the bike. We are at the point where she's about to start gliding on her own, though to keep her interested I have to keep giving her little glimpses of what it will feel like when she's finally able to take off by herself, by bending down (ouch) and pulling the bike alongside.
Overall, the concept is sound but be aware that some kids may not immediately get the gist of it all and will probably need a longer process to really use the bike as it was intended. Just don't give up too soon.
Because of the quality control problems the bike is only good for 3 stars. Maybe if they refine their production process it will deserve more, but for now, that's more than fair.
