My 3 year old son's been on a balance bike since he could walk an we figured it was about time to pedal. We got a 12" bike of an other manufacturer around which unfortunately did not fit due to a too high seat position.
So, when to buy a new bike, the difference of fun in riding a valuable bike can make, I looked for such and found EarlyRider in no time.
It turned out my boy just hit the min. leg length required for the belter/seeker 14. For the black saddle, the pedals and dirt track riding options we choose the seeker.
With his balance bike experience he managed to start and pedal alone within one weekend. The use of the handbrakes where no trouble at all (to avoid stoppies you might want so reset the front brake to lower force). With some practice we lifted the seat position so he can pedal more effective and after 10 days went to our local pump track the first time.
Pro: fast delivery, easy assembly, nice mini platform pedals, riding dirt tracks for extra fun, brake levers adjustable for small hands
Con: it might seem pricy but you truly get what you pay.
