Since kids learning to ride usually stop with their feet... seems like adding inertia to the bike would be asking for them to run into things. Also wouldn't that get pretty dangerous as they speed up? If the flywheel is spinning at 4X wheel speed, that would mean if the kid gets up to 10 mph, the flywheel's moving as though they were going 40 mph. Can you mount a fender / scattershield on those bikes?
Don't let your kid near a hill...
