NSMB REVIEW: BIXBI BIKES: SMALL, LIGHT, FATS
Going to the Bixbi is most definitely a bigger ask than other run bikes. My opinion is that it truly boils down to the function and the type of rider your little person wants to be. If your (or their) desire or destiny is to learn to ride on the odd lap around the block on asphalt, then perhaps the extra cash for the Bixbi performance is not worth it. On the other hand, if your kid lives to rip on his bike, be it on the sidewalk, the dirt of the pumptrack or the roots and rocks on the trails with Dad or Mom, then the Bixbi is absolutely worth its (lack of) weight in confidence, control and progess.
TWO WHEELING TOTS: TOP PICK!
Highly Recommended for ages 2.5 and 3.5 and up
If your stable is full of saddles and chains, but not a single horse, then the Bixbi balance bike is for you. No “Huffy-esque” plastic toy bike parts here, from the painted alloy rims to the integrated threadless headset, the Bixbi’s Route 12 is pure bike, but in miniature form. Destined to be a mantlepiece in your garage (or house!) once your child moves on, the Bixbi is sure to be an integral part of your biking family for years to come.
The BixBi balance bike is ideal for getting young kids started in cycling. It allows children from age two to five years old to get sense of balance without the commitment and motor skills required with conventional pedal bikes. BixBi’s version features a high quality 6061 aluminum frame as well as an aluminum seatpost, bar and stem. As a final touch, BixBi adds a saddle that looks like the classic riveted leather saddle found on pricey adult bikes. Nice.
Whether we were biking on the smooth terrain of the sidewalk or along rugged forest trails, the bixbi Route 12 was easy to handle and steer. From his very first ride on the sharp looking bixbi my 4-year-old son Renaud found it easy to control and effortlessly fun – we could hardly tear him away! I would highly recommend the bixbi, we love ours.
I am enjoying my new Bixbi Bike and can't recommend it enough. Recommended for ages 2 -5 years but can be used earlier than that as demonstrated by me. If you appreciate beauty and a classic design, complete with functionality then the Bixbi Bike is definitely for you. Bixbi Bike gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
The owners of bixbi BIKES decided to create a miniature version of a mountain bike. They wanted a solid and safe design and for it to look cool. Creating something different from the balance bikes that were already on the market was a main goal of theirs.
MY WORK AT HOME WORLD
bixbi bikes aren’t like any other balance bike on the market! Most balance bikes are plastic or wooden and have their own design made to look like they are just for children. bixbi bikes are miniaturized adult bikes! My boyfriend is in love with these bikes for that reason. The bixbi balance bike looks exactly like Daddy’s dream bike and JW LOVES it!
With loads of added features, Bixbi bikes have become a clear favorite for children in recent times. The saddle height of 13.8” to 18.9” easily adjusts to the children of this age group. The price of the Bixbi truly justifies the features it offers and makes it a truly high-end quality bike.
Bicycle retailer includes bixbi bikes in their new products category.
