My son changed to Gecko from a balance bike. On the second day, he did a 13.5 km trip.

Exceptional service experience!

Bike is awesome. Our just-turned-3yo was up and pedaling with no assistance (and no training wheels) within a week. But way more importantly, Cherie, who helped with the purchase, raises the bar on truly exceptional customer experience. I will recommend this shop to anyone who asks, and many who don’t ask. Cherie went way beyond to ensure the bike arrived in time for a short-notice, important weekend of biking.

Great Bike

My daughter is just 2.5 years old and can start, stop and pedal all by her self! A great bike is the key to a child's success.

Best next-step after balance bike

My daughter, 2-1/2, is loving her Gecko. After mastering a Strider balance bike, she’s pedaling, turning and riding away from us in a week’s time. The hand brakes are really smart and for us will be the last aspect of riding a bike-shop quality pedal bike that she will conquer.
