As a family with two kids into mountain biking, bmx racing, and hanging out at the skate park with bikes, we've gone through a lot of bikes in the last 9 years in our house. I wish something this high quality were available when my son was 18mos - 3years, as we went through too many cheap-o run bikes to count…

I find when you buy high quality kids' bikes, if they are well maintained and cared for, you can typically get 75% of their value back out of them on the resell.

Buy the good bike, it's worth it for sure.
