it is a serious movement!
but really... I have yet to spend 200 bucks on a bike for either of my boys
I have a hard to thinking I would have done better to spend this much on a bike that would fit them for less than a year
my boys each learned to ride their bikes with training wheels
we went through the classic training wheel removal and all that goes with it
but... they learned at an early age
and well... with the training wheels we covered a lot of ground that I do not think they would have covered on the push bike
some say it is a "solution to a non-problem"
