Bike companies are getting hip to the next generation of mountain bike talent. Commencal is starting them young on the 12-inch Ramones push bike. No toy, the $199 Ramones 12 is built with some quality parts, like an actual threadless stem and handlebar that can be swapped out as your child grows and pneumatic Kenda K-Rad tires. The rear hub is disc ready too if you want to add a brake.
When you’re grom grows up there’s a whole lineup of kids bikes from Commencal including some full suspension bikes that would make grownups envious.Tweet Print
Balance bikes are a great introduction to learning to ride. They teach balance, gliding, and how to start the initial forward movement on a bike, unlike training wheels that teach children to start with both feet on the pedals.
If you’ve got a little tyke at home, or know of one who needs a ride, we have a prize for you: For one week only Bicycle Times has partnered with Strider Sports to offer an awesome sweepstakes giveaway.
Fill out the entry form below before 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, March 11, for a chance to win a Strider 12 Sport no-pedal balance bike. It’s a lightweight, pedal-free design that allows children to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground, and easily propel the bike by walking or running.
The winner of the Strider balance bike will be chosen and contacted Thursday, March 12, so don’t delay! In the meantime, you can learn more about Strider and its line of balance bikes at its Facebook page.
If you are having trouble with the entry form you can open it in a new window here.
