The engineers across the pond at Early Rider believe strongly in kids riding bikes so much so that the company devotes itself to only making bikes for young riders. As your little one gets ready to try riding a bike for the first time, the Belter Complete Kids' bike will provide a stable, lightweight frame and durable components to take them from tentative first pedal strokes to tearing around the driveway. Designed for children ages 3. 5 to 6 years old, the Belter features a hand brushed aluminum frame to withstand early bumps and spills. According to Early Rider, every extra kilogram on a bike for a three year old child is the equivalent of an adult's bike weighing an extra four to five kilograms. We can't prove that it's a fact, but it does make sense, and the Belter's claimed weight of 5. 6 kilograms or just over 12 pounds is impressive. Early Rider also includes aluminum pedals and an aluminum stem on the Belter to keep the frame light, and they made the interesting decision to forgo a chain in favor of a belt drive. Though young ones may not notice a difference, Mom and Dad will probably appreciate the few extra years of peace before inevitable grease stains begin appearing on their little rider's new clothes.High PSI and high thread count tires will take little riders around the driveway and beyond with stability, and short reach linear front and rear brakes promise reliable stopping power and speed control. With the adjustable seat, growth spurts don't have to mean it's time for a new bike either the seatposts moves from 47cm up to 57cm to accommodate growing kids.
