My 12 yo son will be taking part in the OSIM Triathalon tomorrow on the tikit - kids category. It will be interesting to see how he does against all those bigger wheel bikes. Pretty much stock. He did it on a Speed Pro last year at 31.48 for 10km. Stay tune. Cheer for #378!
Just an update on the OSIM Tri and the Bike Friday tikit. It was the only folder in the 10-12 yo kids race and it came in top 30% among other full size bikes - tri, roadies, mtbs etc. Jem reported that some of the riders who he overtook were shocked, and perhaps even slightly embarrassed by the sight of a "circus" bike passing them by.
What was even more interesting is that he used a 24 Speed Dahon Speed Pro last year and did 31:48 for 10km. This year on the tikit, he did 30:15. No doubt he may have grown a bit more this year, but it speaks volumes about this little 16" commuter bike.
