First pedal bikes for kids (and adults) are very exciting. We receive a lot of questions about our favorite first pedal bike, the woom 2 14" kid's bike.
Some of these questions include: Are handbrakes important on a kid's bike? What is a coaster brake? Why should you get the freewheel upgrade on the woom 2? How difficult is the woom 2 freewheel kit to install? We talk about this and more in this video.
I strongly believe in hand brakes for kids but due to outdated CPSC rules, any kid's bikes with alow seat heights have to come equipped with coaster brakes. The woom 2 14" kid's bike falls into this category so they sell a $20 upgrade to a new wheel (includes tire and tube). Let's talk about why that matters to your kid's biking and what the installation of this new wheel looks like.
Disclaimer: I will make a commission if you purchase from the link above. I promote woom because I believe their bikes are some of the best kids' bikes available.
