|I had one of them, it felt like it weighted more than me! Save your money and get something further up the food chain, or better still a road bike!|

|Not for you, and not for your kid. Good manufacturers sold at real bike shops make small bikes. Cost a little more, but can be repaired
(many bike shops won't even attempt to repair "toy" bikes). Saw a rider on a Huffy on a road tour try to crank uphill and twist the rear derailleur clean off. And no roadside repair van could help.
Bikes are not toys. They are bikes. And breakage while in motion can KILL PEOPLE. Never buy a bike at a toy store.
