Not entirely happy with the results of this bike.
on September 15, 2015
I bought two of these form my twin boys for their birthdays. What seems to be what I though would be an easy task of putting together these bikes turned into a complete hassle. The part parts that they supply are inadequate for the bike, the directions are at best, if you have an active imagination, then you should be fine, which is what I had to do, other than that, the directions are weak and not functional even for someone who builds, and I built my children a 12ft x12ft treehouse. The print is very small and leave you guessing at what they directions are stating, beyond some picture, there are no write ups to give you any help in the directions. I had to use other parts from skateboards and bikes to make sure that this/these bikes were functional and most importantly safe, which leads me back to the parts the supplier supplied and the creative use of your own imagination. Hence forth, I did build the two bikes in two days.
They look nice, quality of the word leaves me with assumptions about longevity of them, I feel with the right tools anyone could make this with relatively ease of mind and budget which I plan on doing for my four year old who is going to want one of these bike. As a basic building blocks to help my children develop their balance and courage, these may be ok for those purposes, the real test would be how well these bikes are at establishing those principles.
Th bikes construction is ok, there are well crafted as in there are no sharp edges. they material of woods are also light in weight, and the factor of adjustability in height is also a a plus. I do think right now that it is a somewhat nicer toy now that I have made the necessary upgrades too them in the materials. I would recommend that you get metal washers for the build, there is a lot of movement of the bike parts even when the screws are tight, again this leads to the inadequate supplies given. On another note, the bearings in the wheels themselves look and feel cheap, I am not sure of the longevity of them, but I would only assume that that are not of good quality and will have to buy better ones in the near future.
Again, before you begin to build this, make sure you have a complete assortment of sizes of other washers, bolt, screws to build this, it may come in handy as i have noticed from my two builds.
