Decided on getting the ZULU Four Heir for our 11yr old boy. His old ride was a Felt 24 inch and was heavy, really heavy. After watching him struggle to keep up and wrestle with the weight I started looking for a lighter ride with quality components.
I looked at Spawn, TC, and a few others. My opinion was that Prevelo offered good quality at a good price so I got it. It arrived as promised and was packaged really well. The instructions are very clear and can be followed by anyone successfully. The supplied allen wrench didn't fit the bolts, but no biggie. Plenty of tools around with this being our youngest. The front caliper also didn't have the spacer installed IAW the instructions but, since no one had squeezed the lever they fit smoothly on the disk. Other than that the bike was already set up as far as derailleur adjustment, tires aired, and fork was preset for him to a T.
He has been on several rides already. 3 serious rides and many around the block rides. Bike has met all my expectations and he is on a serious curve now that he has a bike that can perform. His confidence has exploded! I am very happy with Prevelo and will recommend this to anyone looking for a serious ride at a great price point. I really hope they offer a ZULU Six soon when he is ready for a 26.
