Can you cange a free style bike from hand break to pedal break?
I just got my kid a new bike for his birthday. He is four and is pretty tall for his age. He has been riding around on a small 12 inch bike and wanted to get him something that he could grow into. Well I got him a mongoose from toys R us. He dosn't need anything really fancy. However I didn't realize until I got it put together that it was a free style type bike and had hand breaks only. My son's hands can't really pull the brakes yet. Is there anything I can get that will make the pedals be able to brake? I don't know what to do. I hate to get hims something else but may have to. It may be a while till he can make the hand brakes work.
Thanks in advance!
