      by fromYou get what you pay for I was very unhappy with the quality of the parts. The rear wheel was so out of true that the bike was almost unrideable, and the frame was badly scratched in three places. With the bike being partially built I would think that major issue would be addressed before shipping, but I guess not. After I sandblasted and repainted the frame and forks. I repaired all the mechanical issues. My son loves the bike and we haven't had any troubles. It is unfortunate I had to put SO much work into this bike to make it something I would let my son ride.

      by fromBetter than what you get at Target for one reason My 3.5 year old son rides his peddle-less Strider like he is competing at the X-games. Time to get him a real bike. So I did my research for his next bike and realized that all the bikes I was considering, from the big box store Huffy types to the GT and Diamondback models at the bike stores, were basically all the same. Heavy steel bike frames and all made in China. This is not the Diamondback of my youth, chrome-moly and made in America. That being the case, you can buy this bike cheaper elsewhere (but not by much) or you could by a cheaper 16" wheel bike at Target, Walmart, what have you, but you will not get the customer service that REI has that makes the difference. The rep that helped me made sure my son was fitted to the proper size bike, helping him on and off and making seating adjustments as well as helping him test ride. He had great patience with him and me. REI tests all components of the bike before letting you walk out of the store and offers a 6 month check-up after the bike has been broken in. That's well worth spending a little more at REI vs, Amazon, Target or anywhere else.

      by fromGreat Bike!! After doing a lot of research, I found this bike. As my son's second bike, I wanted him to have a "real" bike, and not a "toy" bike like the ones sold at the big box stores. This absolutely exceeded all my hopes. It is extremely well made, has a very smooth ride, looks great and its price is reasonable. Buying it from REI, also guaranteed that it was put together from professional people, who know what their doing. Plus, they give you a free tune up after 6 months, to make sure everything is good, and in the event there was a problem, which there wasn't, they offer extremely easy returns. I would totally recommend this bike to anyone with kids. It fit's my 4 year old son perfectly, with plenty of room to grow.
