Malvern Star 20" Cruisestar SL (Blue)
Brought to you by Ivanhoe Cycles Hallam
It's sometimes heartbreaking to see little girls that are keen to get outside and do a bit of exercise, but the bike they have to ride is heavy, and may not even operate correctly. It will certainly encourage them to go back inside and win on that video game.
Lightweight bikes are designed to be easier to pedal. They achieve this with a combination of lighter weight and less rolling resistance. The bikes are simply easier to ride. Also because they can get up to a higher speed very quickly, it is easier to get their balance, so they will probably get off training wheels earlier, which makes a huge difference to the ease of pedalling. Of course that one depends on their confidence, not just the bike.
If you wish to encourage the kids away from video games and TV, sport and cycling can be just the thing, and a light, easy bike will allow the kids to venture further from home exploring new areas.. Certainly makes it more enjoyable for the kids, as we are generally trying to entice them outdoors.
The Cruisestar SL has tyres with a tread pattern designed to roll easily, and the casing is a higher quality. Overall this means that the bike requires less effort to pedal. Combined this with the the reduced weight and they immediately notice the difference. Her confidence increases, and she will generally be more enthusiastic (unless the colour is wrong).
We have the shop set up so that kids can test ride bikes indorrs. Of course you can take them outside if you prefer, but most ride indoors. The weight reduction is brought about by using higher quality lighter components. Most high quality kids bikes now have aluminium frames, but these bikes also have most components made of aluminium. The additional cost is not as great as you may expect, generally about $70.
Come in and let her have a test ride on a few bikes, you will soon see which is preferred.
