Made by a company with expertise in downhill and enduro bicycles, the Commencal Ramones 16" Bike is an ideal choice for your future mountain biker. The Ramones 16" Bike is designed to be playful, solid and tough enough to enable riding on and off-the-beaten-path. The sloping frame will help your child get on and off the bike easily. In fact, its design is identical to the Commencal grown-up, higher-end models so it has a true mountain bike look, just like mom and dad’s bikes!
Components are adapted and adjusted to their size and weight and will surely be important in developing the skills of the new generation of mountain bikers! Jumps and drifts, they’re not even scared! The child-sized Tektro mechanical brakes make reaching the brakes easy. The high quality Aluminum frame ensures a bike light enough for your little rider to maneuver with stability and control easily.
Set the extra wide tires with a lower pressure and your child will have the smoothest, grippiest ride out there, rolling right over all rocks and bumps on the trail.

My son has lived roding the bike so far. The rear hub sticks a little bit but not enough to really slow him down.
My daughter loves riding this bike. She tells us daily that one of her favorite things to do is ride her mountain bike. Prior to this, she had a Strider balance bike and this was a good transition for her without using training wheels at all.
My son loves his 16’ Ramones , very capable little bike , handles our root’y trails , descents and jumps great . The disc brakes are a little tricky to get dialed in but once you do they work awesome
My 5 yr old rips easy single track trails on this awesome little bike. This bike is a game changer for him. He feels more confident on the trail and is able to do more then previously on his 16” coaster wheeled bike. Before this bike he would get off his bike and run down a moderately hard flow section of my local trails. Now he rides down it using the disc brakes. Which means I no longer have to carry his bike down it and can enjoy this part of the trail again! Every day after work I get greeted by my 5 yr old boy begging to go hit the local trails. I love it. Bike is well worth the money. I did switch out the freewheel to a 18tooth to help with some of the small climbs and the ramps around the driveway. No chain modifications required but if you where to go to a 20 tooth freewheel then you would need to add some links. The switch from a coaster brake to a lever brake was easy. He picked right up on it especially since it skids really well. The whole bike is designed around a kid. The levers for the brakes are small and easy for small hands to use. The handlebars and grips are small and easy for a kid to use. The geometry of the bike is spot on and puts them in a good position to ride on some dirt trails. Get it, your kiddo will enjoy it and there only like this for so long.
