kids and recumbents.

When i go out on my recumbent and ride it through the park I notice that younger children seem to love the idea of a recumbent bike ,and would love to have one.
It seems to be the cost that stops chidren from riding recumbents.
Im sure that if a manufacturer could make a recumbent in a childs
size at the sort of price parents are willing to pay for a bike ,they would be on th a real winner.

That maybe true, but kids like things that BMX and MTB bikes can do also. 'Bents really don't lend themselves to those kind of activities, but you never know. I know I would buy my daughter one if they were more reasonable.
