First of all, I’m of the belief that challenges make ones life better. I try and apply this to my kids’ (within reason of course) whenever possible.
But this is a bit ridiculous.
As we were riding up a 1% hill, I asked “how does the bike feel? Is the seat too low? Is the bike too big, too small? ” The response was “TOO HEAVY!”
That little bike weighs more than your bike (20lbs).
Look, I get it. They’re cheap, and stable descending at that weight, and there’s no market for a $600 kids bike. But it is simply too heavy given the technology available. If we were going to do a straight comparison, it’d be like your bike weighing 90-100lbs (assuming you’re 160-170). Skis and snowboards aren’t this disproportionate, nor are tennis racquets or golf clubs.
Is this a reality or an opportunity?
