From Katlyn: I like it because it is a mountain bike and can easily go up hills and do not have to worry about struggling to get up them. It is a little heavy for me but it looks really good and the gears are really smooth to change.
From Daddy: We got this bike for her on her 6th birthday. Katlyn is average height but is a little on the petite side. I have been thoroughly impressed by the Giant. It was a little big for her at first, but she was able to cope. She is now in her 3rd summer riding it. There has not been a single problem and she abuses the bike like any kid does. Next year we will be upgrading to a 24″ bike, but I have no problems recommending this bike or one of the similar new models to any parent out there. This is a quality bike, while more expensive then we tend to want to spend for kids, we have gotten 3 riding seasons out of it and she will go on 15 mile rides with us, There’s not a Wal-Mart bike out there that could take that amount of use and not have a single drop of maintenance. I would to upgrade her mother and my bike’s badly, we have Schwinns. and to laugh at the quality difference, our rims are not straight any longer like the Giant’s are and if you spin the front tire of the Giant, wait a minute and spin the tire of the Schwinn, the Giant will be spinning long after the Schwinn stopped. Excellent bike. When do we get ours!?
