    Do you have an REI nearby? They teach classes on how to ride a bike for both kids and adults. I think with older kids and adults, it helps to have someone you don't know and who isn't emotionally...

    There are lots of padded shorts/skorts that don't look like traditional "bike shorts" and no one would know you're sporting chamois, like:

    If you want light weight with a magnetic clip, check out the Lazer P'Nut. We've had the Nut'z one for our son for almost three years (got when he was two because we pinched him once and after that...

    Maybe it would comfort you to know that in 2013, nationwide, the NHTSA reports that there were only 3 "cyclists" under age 5 killed and fewer than 500 were reported injured out of a population of 20...

    I had an Easy Fit adapter attached to my Racktime Addit rack (the poor man's Tubus Logo :)) for over a year for use by my daughter with a GMG911 seat (predecessor to the Yepp Junior). I now have a...

    I can't argue with a tape measure, but that seems high. Our daughter's inseam was 19" when we got her 20" Islabike and she had been riding the 16" Hotrock, with the seat raised fairly high, for 6...

    I can't find a minimum seat height or inseam measurement anywhere for either the new or old Hotrocks--I did find one reviewer who said he was able to fit his 41" daughter on a 16", with a swap to a...

    While I've been happy with our used Strider, the Yeedoo Too Too looks like a pretty good option at just slightly over $150. It has a wide range of adjustability in the seat height, air tires, and a...

    It's not super dense, but we love dry-roasted edamame. It's packed with protein and fiber, so it's very filling without being fattening. If you have a Smart and Final grocery store near you, they...

    One more you might want to look at, though it is currently on backorder, is the Commencal Ramone 16": Commencal Ramones 16" Mountain Bike | Tikes Bikes

    I don't know when it will be back in stock,...

    I can't speak to how Spawn achieves CPSC regulatory compliance (they may have done it the same way Cleary has, by increasing the max seat height), but they can be and have been imported into the U.S....

    It's unfortunate that the Priority Bikes video doesn't show any kids riding without training wheels, so it's hard to tell whether it's possible to adjust the seat height so that kids can put a foot...

    How tall is your daughter? If she is very tall, as you suggest, you may want to look at the Islabike Beinn 20 small. My son, who will be 5 in September, recently started riding the Beinn 20 Small (a...

    My son has been safely riding a bike without a coaster brake since his 4th Birthday, after starting on a 12" Hotrock with a coaster brake, which frustrated him. I disagree that coaster brakes are...

    One more you might want to look at would be the ByK E-350. This is an Australian brand that recently started importing to the U.S. through CycleForce. They offer an 18" single-speed, which would...

    The Trek Jet and Mystic kids bikes are awful. They weigh a ton and they have terrible geometry--super high riser bars that lead to a high center of gravity and twitchy handling, plus a high bottom...

    As an alternative perspective, maybe if that little girl had had a balance bike, she would have been riding on her own already without training wheels. My son started on a balance bike (and a Micro...

    You might also look at the Tykesbykes 16" bike. It appears they are on a super (50% off) sale, so the bike would be $105 including shipping:

    The 16" Hot Rock isn't a bad bike--that's what my daughter was on before she moved to the 20" Islabike--and if you have an option to get one used for under $100, I might go for it--since he'll...
