After looking at the BSOs, I couldn't make her ride one. She hopped on this at the shop and wouldn't get off.
This is why I'm never taking my daughter to a bike shop!
well it was cheaper than the one I was looking at....
More accessories arrive for Christmas

Apologies for the tardy response! Velogear. Comes with a rocking base for young kids, which can be removed later from the balance bike. Adjustable saddle height. Wheels are a bit heavy, though.

Aim is to build as light as feasible and spend no more than $250.00 including orig purchase of the bike itself -- $15 Alum 6061 Carrera 20. This will include repaint, front disc,finishing kit all the fruit - so if you have anything you can or would like to contribute to the build please let me know.
Found a carrera 20 complete bike at the tip all there just showing plenty of love. Aim is to take it to bare frame and build it back up including new paint. SO happy to take advice on colour scheme ideas.
Also found at the tip mint 20inch velocity aero heat front wheel disc mount mavic hub near new schwalbe tyre mounted - paid along with 2 x LX rear derailleurs 3 sets of lightweight pedals and a cromo shogun frame $30
have been offered a set of HED carbon wheels tyre - but they represent the sum of my total build budget and im building the bike for dirt and road - cool wheels though
Frame as it is now - ready for stripping
SO total cost so far is about $25.00 - looking for bars stem brakes cranks etc -need to be light good and cheap
