We had winnowed our bicycle selections for our son's first bicycle down to two bicycles. It was a difficult process because we had two requirements; it must be able to accommodate a short inseam of 15', and it has freewheel option. As we read the comments on a toddler bicycle website, someone mentioned Prevelo. I would like to thank this person. We never even heard of the company, and I decided to take a closer look. I immediately saw the quality of the welds, the thoughtfully designed aluminum frame, and the brakes. Even though the the bikes were not well reviewed, I read about the company itself, how they started new with a vision about how toddler bicycles can be. What sold me is an article written by their engineer, someone who has designed bicycle frames for major companies for 40 years. Finally, when placing the order, we found out that it was local to us. I decided to ring up the number and was surprised to find out the man I was talking to was the owner. Being entrepreneurial myself, I had to visit the company, and we ended up buying the bike directly from the owner! :) My son had the most amazing first-bicycle purchase experience. Thank you for Prevelo for building the most well-designed first-bicycle on the market today. We truly believe that.
