This is our second Early Rider purchase and we couldn't be happier. Our first bike was the Bigfoot which really eased the transition to hand controlled brakes after being on a Strider. I was amazed at the quality of the bike and the attention to detail in pre-assembly. It took only a few minutes to assemble the bike and double check torque specs on the pre-adjusted bolts. Everything was up to spec and working as designed out of the box which was greatly appreciated. It was also nice to have a variety of reflectors included in the box.
The transition from the Bigfoot to the Seeker 16 went very smoothly. Our son seemed extremely confident right away. He literally got on the bike and took off. He got tired a ways into the ride and had to carry the bike. A light bike for kids isn't only good for performance, its also good for parents who end up carrying the bikes too. We are all excited for the bike to get more use in the years ahead.
