Sturdy steel frame withstands all sorts of abuse; metal chain cover and fenders help protect child from grime and moving parts
Floral graphics on the frame, fenders and chainguard suit a young lady's tastes; she'll find them on the spring-cushioned saddle as well
Low step-through frame accommodates a wide range of heights and makes mounting and dismounting the saddle quick and easy
Integrated coaster brake is both effective and intuitively simple to use—just have her pedal in reverse
With a single speed and coaster brakes, the child-size Hawaii is simplicity itself; there are no shifters or hand brakes to concern a new rider
Ergonomic saddle helps balance the child atop the bike in comfort; handlebar design accommodates an upright ride and enhances control
Wide balloon tires enhance stability and traction
Fitting an Electra bike is easy. Start by setting the saddle to its lowest position and then stand over it with both feet flat on the ground. Next, simply raise the saddle until it rests in the crotch. Tighten it in place, and that's it— you're done! After an initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.

by d-mackishawfromBeautiful, well made bikeMy 9 year old daughter rides this bike and she loves it. According to her it's more comfortable to ride than mountain bike styles. Feels very solid and well made.
