We just did a jump from the seeker 14” to the 20” for a sixth birthday gift. His inside leg measurement was 54cm and he has his feet flat on the floor.
Its much bigger but put no pressure on him to make the switch. Three days later he wanted to try it.
He is able to use the gears but it is a little tough. He will get stronger so it’s not a problem. I was apprehensive about that part, I needn’t of worried.
From my son’s POV the bike is amazing. He’s stoked he can ride up hills now.
He loves the brakes. I’ve adjusted the levers all the way in. Just a small Allan key needed.
I can’t see how the bike can fail. Great components. Delicious design. The boy was whooping and a shouting yeah spinning around the park. And away…..
