    Comments:

    I bought this bike for my 7 year old daughter for Christmas. She was riding a 16" Diamondback Mini Dela Cruse and just grew out of it. I like to go running on trails, street & dirt roads and the Diamondback was just not up to the task. I was a bit worried about her transitioning to lever brakes and gears but she got it fairly quickly. Now on my runs she is sooo much faster than I am and it encourages me to run at a faster pace. The components work smoothly and easily. I though the twist gear change would be difficult for her but no problem at all. Before I chose this bike I looked at 24" bikes from Sports Chalet, Diamondbacks and got really close to the Trek. For the price it made more sense to go with the Specialized. The guys at Cycopath showed me this and the step under it. What finally sold me on this one was the quick release hubs (easier to get into the trunk of the car). But the lockable front suspension was a nice feature as well (she's too light to need that right now). I expect this bike to last about 4 years so I could justify the price. My daughter is very happy with a great looking bike and I'm happy with the performance. One note though. The tires kick up a lot of gravel and throw it onto her back. I'm looking into getting some fenders to keep her a little cleaner. :)
