    Any updates on full review yet?

    • Thanks for the reminder. The kids have been riding the bike for a couple months and it is a great bike for the price. At 24 lb. I wouldn’t recommend it for lightweight or timid riders though as it is heavier than many bikes. Any questions about it in particular?

      • Vishwas

        Thank you for the reply. Just had questions on quality of components and how are they holding up. Yeah at 24 lb it would be little tough I guess but still little light than base models from Specialized and Trek I guess.

        • So far they are doing great. In fact, I would be very surprised in any Trek or Specialized similiar in price had components better than on the Sprinter. You are also right about weight, any bike sub $300 in a bike shop is going to weigh close to, if not heavier than the Sprinter.

    I’m going back and forth between this bike, the Stamped Sprinter 20″, and the ByK E-450 for my six, soon to be seven year old son. He’s 50″ tall, weighs 55lbs and has a 22.5″ inseam. He first had a regular bike with training wheels, but refused to ride it without the training wheels. We then got him a Tykesbykes Charger 16″ balance bike and he loves it and rides it well. He’s overall a rather cautious boy. Thoughts?

    • We actually have both bikes right now and they are actually very different bikes! The ByK 450 is a fast bike that is much like a road bike for kids, but with a comfortably geometry. It doesn’t have any gears, but all of our testers love riding it. The Stampede Sprinter 20″ is designed for more all-terrain riding. It is heavier and has gears. So if he is riding all-terrain trails, I would go for the Sprinter 20″, if he is riding around town, I would go for the 450.

  • My daughter just turned to 7 today and she is 52″. I am not sure if I spend $250+ to buy this for her to only use for a year. What can be my next option, if I want her to use at least 3 years. How tall is the kid on the pic? Thanks

    • This bike is a big 20″. The girl in the picture was in size 10 clothes at the time and was 9 year-old, but I don’t know her height at the time the picture was taken. Since it is a larger 20″, your daughter will very likely get two years out of it, but three would likely be pushing it.

      • Thanks for your reply. I went to a local store to check 20″ with my daughter, and found out that will not fit her more than 1.5-2 years. I decided to get 24″, and bought “Diamondback Bicycles 2015 Lustre 24 Complete Hard Tail”

        • Glad you found a bike that works! Many parents forget to measure, which as you found, can make a big difference.

    This bike is no longer available on Amazon and I can’t find it anywhere else online. Is it still available? Did the company go out of business? it sure seemed like a great budget-friendly option and I’d love to track one down for my daughter. Do you have any intel on the availability of this bike? Thanks!
