Prevelo 16" Alpha Two Bike
The perfect bike, whether they are just learning to ride or are mastering the trails.
Fits: 3.5-6 yr olds
Availability: All colors are sold out.
Super light. Superb quality. Prevelo bikes inspire confidence with their low and narrow geometry. At only 14.5 lbs and a low minimum seat height of 17.5" (with the shorter seat post installed), most 3.5 year olds can comfortably ride this bike.
The Prevelo Alpha Two Bike features:
- Prevelo confidence inspiring low and narrow geometry. Prevelo geometry keeps the rider low, balanced and in control.
- Lightweight 6061 aluminum frame with custom formed tubing.
- Lightweight aluminum alloy fork with chromoly steerer.
- Tektro front and rear v-brakes with small reach brake levers.
- Front and rear hubs with low profile rounded hex bolts and no harsh edged nuts for little legs to knock against.
- Three piece crank with squared taper bottom cartridge bearing bottom bracket and ultra narrow Q factor.
- Double chain wheel guard.
- Custom made cranks. All Prevelo cranks are sized specifically for each model bike, down to the millimeter.
- 95% assembled. Just install the handlebar, seatpost and pedals.
To comply with CPSC standards, the standard seat post on the Alpha Two is 350MM. With the standard seat post the lowest seat height is 23 inches. With the 140MM short seat post the seat height can be lowered to 17.5 inches. The short seat post includes a 6MM hex key for installation.

Very nice bike, fast shipping
Awesome sales team. Item was on back order (manufacturer) and the team followed up via voicemail and email to set proper expectations on shipping. He even offered in stock alternatives.
After doing tons of research on kid bikes, we decided on this Prevelo. It is a nice bike and kiddo loves it. The experience with the seller was fine at the end of the day, but could have been better. There were significant delivery delays (in the order of weeks) beyond what we expected. The seller did communicate about the delays, but not until several days after placing the order. In addition, one of the brake pads fell off upon removing from the box because there were missing washers. Ultimately took it to a local bike shop to make sure it was put together properly.
Bike is excellent. I ordered from this company with the impression they were in Colorado which they are but they didn’t have my item in stock and it needed to ship from California. The team there was unwilling to expedite this shipping without charging me. Will not order through them again.
My 4 year old son was on a strider for 2 years. And it was time for him to learn pedaling. I really wish balance bikes were available when I learned. Could of had less scars. Son picked up the hand braking in 5 mins, pedaling in about 15 mins. And another 45 mins to learn how to start the bike from dead stop. The prevelo makes a great bike. Well balance and light. Money well spent!
