I have the Trek trail-a-bike and it works nicely. I have no complaints and no noticeable wobble where it connects. If anything, the connection is too tight...it's been 2 years and it's still very,...

I took the advice in this thread and sure enough, my 7 year old is finally riding without training wheels.

He was far too fast with training wheels to be safe (taking turns where the back tire of...

I love my Topeak babyseat. It was fairly expensive $100-135, I think...but installs cleanly on my Trek Nav 300. I initially tried some cheaper other brand's seat and had problems installing it...

I was looking at 20" bikes and noticed that the new 2006 Trek Mountain Track 60 has an Alpha Aluminum frame versus the older version of that bike (Mountain Lion 60 and perhaps older Mountain Track...

I couldn't stand running at her slow pace when we tried running together years ago...I can't imagine riding (or even staying upright) behind her. I'd be ready to throw myself in front of the passing...

I doubt anything like that exists. Think about how far apart training wheels are....the width of the tires would likely need to be at least as wide.

Even though he's big for his age, you'll have to fit him to a bike. I suspect with an inseam of only 13 inches that you'll have to go with a 12" bike for now. I've noticed that brands vary markedly...

I'm still not convinced anyone has identified the weight difference between "department store" bikes and more upscale ones (Trek, Specialized, Giant) or even customized ones. People throw out...

What kind of question is that? If the kid doesn't realize the danger of traffic, he shouldn't be out on the streets at any speed without direct adult supervision. If he's being closely supervised,...

Oh, and they should only ride downhill, right? All that work pushing hard on the pedals...

Bah! You're talking about a few more pounds on a bike for goodness sake! They're not riding in the Tour de France.

Heavier bike = stronger leg muscles :)

Does your child's feet reach the pedals when they're at the 9 and 3 positions?

If so, just let her coast. It's not like her pedaling would make a difference and she'll still love to ride along...

If you're not going far from home, you don't need repair tools...assuming you can call someone on your cell phone to pick you up.
