... If you've got the latest issue of "VeloNews" then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Any of you out there starting Junior (or Juniorette) on one of these???

Be the bike.

They rode a chain driven tricyle that must have weighed 15 kg. The Litespeed definitely needs a platform on the back for a little brother to stand on.
steel trikes have a nicer ride qualitytarwheel

Besides, the weight savings on a ti vs steel tricycle is only a few ounces. Who wants a dull gray trike -- a kid needs a red one. However, carbon trikes are stiffer and a little lighter. Aluminum? Too much road buzz for young tricyclists, and you never know when it might snap from frame fatigue.

Just think of all the power a 3 year old could put into it! I've never harmed an aluminum frame but I'm sure if I ever have a son he could with ease!!! :)
