24" Malvern Star Attitude 18s
There are so many forms of entertainment available to kids today. Lots of parents see cycling as a more beneficial activity than video games and television. If those parents make time to ride with the kids and enjoy their time together, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that the kids enjoy cycling.
The Malvern Star Attitude frame is similar to most other better brands having an aluminium frame with front suspension. Heavier steel bikes (and lower quality aluminium bikes) are much harder for kids to pedal, and they often have heavy low quality mountain bike tyres, that take more effort to push. It is mainly the weight and greater rolling resistance that have such a detrimental impact.
Malvern Star has been around since 1903, and originated in Malvern, Victoria, although they didn?t produce little kids bikes back then. It has been a very popular Australian brand for over a century.
Naturally the appearance has been made appealing to most kids, as this can be a major stumbling block, but it is the comfort and ease of pedaling that will probably win them over. Your child can sit relatively upright, which of course increases their confidence level as they are not stretching forward feeling a little unbalanced. When they sit upright, firmly positioned on the saddle, kids feel more in control, so have more attention on where they are going, less on the operation of the bike.
The Attitude has 18 gears more than adequate for most suburban areas. Many parents are concerned that their kids will find the gears too complicated, but this seems to be rarely the case, and with a bicycle the gears do not have to be changed until the child is ready. It can be left in one gear until more confidence is gained, the watch them go.
Overall it is a simple bike to use, a reputable brand and very appealing at the price. Come along and compare it with a few other brands, they can all be test ridden, and the winner can be taken home.
