Aside from our light scuffs and a "dinged" bell - there's no way this balance bike is going to buckle from anything your kid will put it through. I thought twice about the price, considered the build against others in the market, then unreservedly splashed out and bought one for my first daughter's second Christmas @ 20mths old - a bit early, but hey...it was fun to push around and left lasting memories. Now at 3-1/2yo she absolutely rails it through the bends and has no fear of death wobbles, reefing the bars at speed with utter abandon! I'm sure we'd have been to hospital at least once - if it weren't for the perfect assembly of the rig by BC and a final Sales/Service QA check in the workshop, before departing, of the quality parts supplied by Merida. Frame - perfect for little legs to step through, light enough for a 2yo to pick up and carry, colour combo - icing on the cake! Wheels - tyres are nice and fat to soak up the bumps and have great spread of tread around to the sidewall to add confidence. After a year of use, hubs are still smooth and free of sticktion. Seat - plastic grab handle protects the saddle. Componentry - all painted with same detail as frame, has proper clamps and fasteners - not plastic-capped rubbish. Grips are great for small hands and "bar end"-type stubs ensure they don't wander off. My wife was worried she'd outgrow it - hence the cheeky late night return to the site to look for something with pedals - but, it should remain in service for at least another two years with number one and is getting ready for some fun time under number two! Don't like pink? Also comes in green. Worth it, buy it (from BC!) - the end.by Nik, February 02, 2019
