Will be interesting to see how much more the red one weighs with all the heavy bits on it!
I didn't realise that little kids bikes were so heavy
I'm afraid to weigh my daughters 16" bike. I've had to carry a few times, and bugger me if they didn't use Steam Pipe for it !!!!!
[For those that don't know, Steam Pipe is VERY thick wall mild steel tube]
Damn fine idea to reduce weight, especially if you have the bits, and it costs you a bit of elbow grease.
Does your daughter like to help ? Mine does, and often creates mire hassle, but I love it.
I didn't start riding proper until I was 12.... there is plenty of time she will get it.
