Great bike. I bought my son a Zulu 3 Heir for his 7th birthday. He's always been on good "bike shop" brands (the big S or T), which have been OK, but the fit and design of this bike took his riding up several notches on day 1. The increase in his confidence and ability, simply due to having a better-fitting and kid-specific design has been very noticeable since Ride 1 on the Prevelo. Yes, it's an investment, but if you are passionate about riding yourself and want to help get your future riding partner hooked on the sport, this is a great bike for doing that.
Also I would like to give a shout-out to Prevelo's customer service. They made sure to ship the bike quickly (in time for b-day delivery) and also went above-and-beyond to help resolve some minor issues that popped up after delivery. Solid product and solid company, definitely recommend!
