Re: Child first bike - advice pls

Our daughter is very slim and just did not have the strength to lift a steel framed bike, we ended up spending a little extra and getting her an aluminium framed bike from the bike store. It has a fairly small frame but larger wheels (20"), and the seat, handle bar and even pedals can be extended, she is going into her second year with it and will likely be able to ride it two more. Worth the investment! And then when she is done with it, we should be able to sell it for a decent price.

Our daughter was almost 9 (but the size of an 8 yr old) when we bought this bike, and we did buy her a bike with gears, as it was hard for her to keep up with the rest of us otherwise, I think her bike has 6 gears.
Excuse me, what is the brand and model you bought pls? I like the idea of adjustable and be used for a few years.!
