Bike for a 3 year old
My son is 3 years old, and I am considering getting him a new bike.
I am torn about what to get for him. Trek came out with a trikester that I have seen in person, and it is pretty impressive. It has a very adjustable fit, pneumatic tires, and it rolls well.
The other option is a 12" bike, but the only 12" bike I have seen (Gary fishers) are pretty crappy. Of the 6 assembled bikes, Three of them had the wheels were out of true. All of the rear wheels had significant drag. Does anyone have experience with this?
Right now he is riding one of those old all metal tricycles with the hard wheels, but is does not roll terribly well, and this seems to prevent him from using the pedals.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
