    I saw the littleBIG Late Late Show and thought it would be great for my little fella (3Yrs Old) for Christmas.

    The bike arrived the week before Christmas and I was impressed with the ease of assembly, the build quality and overall design.

    My sons face on Christmas morning was priceless. He loves his bike and keeps asking to go out for a cycle.

    I went for the Flame Red model and got the pedal and crank assembly at the same time.
    This keeps the options open for any future additions to the clan (either a boy or a girl)!

    A bike that ages with you: even when you are young. Brilliant. Its lovely looking and made with quality parts.
    I think it’s the best idea I’ve seen in ages and my 3 year old Nephew agrees (even though doesn’t quiet say it like that: He just keeps flying around on it)

    I had been researching quality children’s bikes for weeks when I found this site. My 4 yr old daughter has been needing a bigger bike and is ready for pedals, but I was determined that she would not have a coaster brake. In the United States all bikes with wheels under 20in are required by law to be sold with coaster brakes (stupid I know), so I was very happy to find this option. Quality bikes sold in the US get around his law by selling a separate freewheel kit, but at the end of it all you’re out around $400 and the lower end! I wanted my girl (and the boys after her) to have a quality bike that they would love to ride and I found it here. A lot if bike for the money, and it grows with the child. My daughter loves her bike and that she can go faster than she could on the 12″ wheels if her old strider. The handbrakes are easy to pull and she figured them out quickly. The only criticisms I have are that the bike is too big for her in the “big” setting, so we will have to wait a little longer for pedals even though she is ready, and the other issue was that the brakes needed a lot of adjustment when it arrived. When the bike got to us, the brakes would drag on the wheel. The issue was easy enough to resolve and was probably due to shipping. Overall love it, great product.

    I have no affiliation with LittleBig and got nothing in return for this review, but I’m excited to share it because I am a picky, research-oriented dad, and I am really happy with our two LittleBig bikes. I was nervous to buy them without being able to try in person, but they are well made, easy to assemble and adjust, and most importantly, my kids took to them right away and are doing great riding.

    After a lot of research online and in-store, we decided that a balance bike would be the best fit for our twin 3.5 year olds. We looked at a number of 12in training wheel bikes as well as two different well-reviewed balance bikes. Ultimately I took a chance sight unseen with two of the LittleBig bikes because of the design, weight, and ability to grow with our kids.

    Ordering was easy and the backordered bikes were shipped as promised. Transit time to the US was about a week, and they arrived well packaged and in good shape.

    Assembly was fairly easy although I found the brakes needed a little adjusting. No big deal, but worth a quick YouTube search on adjusting v-brakes if you’ve not done it before. I’m a handy person with a keen interest in materials and engineering, and a cyclist myself. I was really impressed with the quality of the frame and components; they are noticeably better than the bikes we’d looked at in-store (several of which were >=$100 more expensive.) The frame and parts really do inspire confidence that this will last the kids for years.

    Once assembled, my kids were up and away. The more confident rider was gliding on the driveway right off, but my more more cautious and clumsy child really impressed us with how quickly he seemed to feel comfortable on the LittleBig. The low step-over height of the single tube and the light weight both seemed to really help make him feel a lot more confident. They are easily able to maneuver the bikes, and the light weight also makes them so easy to put away and get out for riding. I’ve got them hanging from hooks in the garage, and it is easy to grab them one-handed when it’s time to ride.

    We are currently using the lower seat height setting, but I imagine that flipping to the higher ride position and then adding the pedals will be pretty easy having looked at the parts.

    I also bought a single CariBob strap, which is well made and handy. I wouldn’t want to take a hike carrying two bikes on a strap, but it sure makes it easy to go short distances. The strap is easy and intuitive to use, and could be used for other kid stuff, though ours will stay with the bikes.

    I bought my grand daughter a Little Big Bike when they came out, and she loved it, now I have just put the pedals on and off she went full of confidence, her younger sister is just at the age for a balance bike so I have just bought her a sparkling pink Little Big Bike, and she tries to keep up with her from the first time she sat on it
    As a keen cyclist myself I can see the design and quality of this bike and without question would recommend the Little Big Bike to one and all
