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.
