Are coaster brakes a good idea?
My son has been riding his balance bike for 8 months and I am wanting to get him his first pedal bike for Christmas (he will be 3 shortly afterwards). I have looked at the Giant animator jnr and specialized hotrock 12". Like the look of specialized more but unsure on coaster brakes, is it better to go for normal brakes from the start? any advise would be appreciated also any ideas of other good 12" models?? Thanks
