I can go 2 MPH in my lowest couple of gears on my KHS without too much trouble.
Yes the bike is small for him now. He can ride a 16" bike with the seat low without any problems. But I *just* got this bike for him this past Christmas, will probably need to wait until at least this Christmas to get another bike. It is definitely small for him, he's grown a lot this year. The seat post is set at the maximum height currently. Every now and then he will look at my road bike and say "I want the seat tall like your bike daddy"
Training wheels... yeah I took them off for a few weeks recently, and he tried riding a couple of times but then just wasn't interested in riding at all after that. I put the TW's back on just to at least get him back on the bike for now. I think we'll probably wait until he has a 16" bike before we try again without TW's.
