Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:A friend of ours bought a 40cm bike for her 4yo grandson from Kmart and I offered to assemble it for her. Including training wheels: 11.805 kg.
Would make a good boat anchor.
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:Yep. Kids bikes are often heavier than their parents bikes. Lucky they don't ride them much... I mean I wonder how much they would if they were decent...
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill.
Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day.

Steel is real!
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:I just fixed up a hard rubbish find for my nephew (5 y.o.) on behalf of my inlaws, and I swear it weighs as much as my 62cm steel roadie.
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:my daughter's 16" avanti weighs more than my roadie...
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:Funny, my kids' bikes also weigh more than mine. That's like me riding a 50Kg bike!!! Crazy!

Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:
They arn't all rubbish. Like everything you get what you pay for. Never ceases to amaze me that parents will spend $4k plus on a bike for themselves but wouldn't spend a quarter of that to get a decent bike for junior. http://www.proliteoz.com/store/index.p ... roductId=6 Our Website is: http://www.kotavelo.com.au Find us on Facebook by searching for "Kotavelo"
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:@Jacks, that could well be because kids change size so rapidly, somewhat defeating the purpose of buying a 'keeper' bike.
That being said I tend to see many teenagers riding bikes that they probably should have gotten rid of when they were 6...
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:
Most adults I know would change their bikes over quicker than the kids would grow out of them Resale on a decent kids bike is also very good compared to an adult bike. Our Website is: http://www.kotavelo.com.au Find us on Facebook by searching for "Kotavelo"
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:Yep, I was horrified how heavy my 3yr old's Kmart special was, especially after picking up a Madone 5.2 earlier that week.
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:
Where are the 16"and 20" models then? It is easy to get 24" at a light weight.
Most manufacturers of kids bikes, i.e., below 24" won't publish the weights of their bikes for fear...
Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:
I thought it was because there were no scales that could handle them Ken
Helmets! Bells! Rego!

Call BS ...whatever the road rules, selfpreservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Re: Guess the weight of a Kmart kids bike:My wife recently came home from a garage sale with a kids bike for $10.00., perfect, could'nt buy the tyres for that, but why have they got two top tubes????
I would estimate it weighs 10/12kg plus???????????????? Grandson had one ride & went straight back to his undersize lightweight
