Maybe it’s time they stopped making crap bikes, and closed up shop for good. And if you want to buy your kid a bike, get one from a bike shop, or a decent used bike. But not a total piece of crap.
Another sad aspect is how many kids, as well as grownups, have been turned off to a life time of serious cycling due to these crappy bikes? Get your kid a good bike!
Hey Brian, I couldn’t agree more if I tried!
