My nephew is almost 2 years old, about time he gets his first bike. I have found him trying to ride my runt mini bike more then once.
I am not sure if he would be better off with a big wheel, or a more upright traditional tricycle.
From what i understand, the big-wheels are safer, as they tend to slide around corners, rather then tip over. They also have a lower center of gravity. I am not sure what the advantage of the more traditional design is, but they look cool and seem faster.
One last thing to consider, is that use will more then likely be on grass and hard packed dirt (backyard). I may need to look into an all terrain trike.
Any thoughts for a first time tricycle buyer? I would love something that is adjustable, so he can get more then a few months of use. If possible, durable, always nice to give somebody a bike when we have no use for it.
Budget is cheap, under $50 would leave more bike money in the bank for myself.
