ByK E-450

ByK E-450
      • Brittany R.

        I’m looking at the ByK 450 for the 6 year old (wears size 7-8). He has been riding a TykesBykes 16 inch pedal but it’s wayyyyy too small for him and his knees almost hit the handlebars. I really don’t want to spend $250 though. I know it’s a good investment, but are there ANY lower end models that are “good enough”? I’m also looking at the Diamondback Viper Jr. 20 inch. Any thoughts?

        • TykesBykes (now Stampede Bikes) also has a 20″ bike that I would consider. It is heavier than the ByK, but well made. Then again, it is $250 as well (https://stampedebikes.com/product/sprinter-20/). The Diamondback 20″ Viper would be a good choice as well as long as he doesn’t plan on riding on anything too adventurous. The bike’s frame is much more upright than the Sprinter you have now, so he won’t be able to go over jumps or ramps as easily. If he is a more aggressive rider, I would also check out REI’s Popolo 20, http://bit.ly/1MLSKUi.
