This review comes after my eight year old has had seven months on his Zulu Four.
He loves it, and his riding has taken off. The bike has endured the abuse an eight year old can dish out. Rims are true, no issues with the components, it was a good purchase.
Jacob was great to work with on the bike, we did the first 11x42 build (it looks like the new version is built this way) and that gearing allows my kiddo to climb things he walked up before.
We’re living in an era of great kiddo bike options, and Prevelo hits the sweet spot of solid engineering, a good component spec and value in price. It should be at the top of your list for your young shredder.
