Having ordered many things from Real Cyclist, I was disappointed by the quality of this product.

The molded plastic wheels didn't turn well and the tires have no traction at all. On sidewalk and pavement, they were slippery. This was a major safety concern to me. A speedy turn would be disasterous.

The headset was very, very stiff. It barely turned. This made it nearly impossible for my child to control the bike. Note: My child had ridden another brand and did not have this same problem.

Plastic. Plastic. Plastic. Only the frame and handlebars are made of metal. All other parts are plastic, including the grips, wheels, and tires.

Turn radius. Unlike with similar products, this bike has no control over turn radius. Translation: this bike could jack-knife at high speeds. Safety concern.

Frame. The frame itself is very nice. The size and dimensions are appropriate for ages 1-3 (my one-year-old can sit in the saddle, reach the bars, and touch feet to ground.

Grip tape on rear "chainstay" is in a great spot for a foot rest.

In all, I returned this bike because of quality issues discussed above. $99 was too much money for something that appeared unsafe, wasn't in good working condition, and didn't look like it would last beyond a few months.

The good: I love how these tights look and feel. On fit, I'm 6'5" tall. XXL fits perfectly. Often, XXL in U.S. sizes fits too big around the waist. XL is too short in the legs. These are perfect. Also, I love the stirrups; they keep my ankles warm by preventing the the tights from sliding as I pedal. Fabric and chamois are very comfortable.
