so I will assume semi serious and note: The poster of this pic.....noted the children using this setup were 5 and 7...ie capbably of riding a bike and falling off without any help....so would this be any different for that age?
I'm as serious as I can be. Often folk's just don't "see" danger for what it is.....Danger...and will
fail to allow for the possiblity. I don't know about you but having my kids get hurt on my
bike 'cause "I" failed to "see" the danger would be something I'd have a hard time living with.

IMO letting any kid under 12 yrs. ride a bike like this is like giving them a loaded gun and say "don't
get hurt"
