Why are kids bikes so heavy
Took my 8yr old son and his mate to local cycle centre with their bikes, I thought my son's Giant mtb was heavy till I picked up his mates Raleigh hot rod thing. It weighed nearly as much as my full-size math and its only got 20" wheels. No wonder the lad was knackered every time we hit a slight rise in the ground. Still got about 3 miles out of him though, not bad given he hadn't ridden a bike since last October. Why can't we get the mainstream manufacturers to build lighter bikes, if Islabike and frogbikes can do it surely so can the others.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
