Great bike for girls at a moderate priceWe bought this bike as a 9th birthday present for our daughter - she is a very novice bike rider having just learned two wheels on her brothers bike last fall. She is in that weird age/bike-size between 20" and 24" (since 22" bikes are apparently no longer made). She liked this one the best out all the 24" bikes she saw. She is 50-1/4" tall, and with the seat slammed all the way down, probably the very minimum height that could safely ride this bike. She rides in a nice upright position with very slight elbow bend to reach handle bars. Since it is a hybrid there are a few things that are really nice about it. The weight is much lighter than a "Mountain" bike. She liked the thinner tires - less work to ride too. The drop on the frame (stand over height) fit her well - she was able to straddle the frame easily - an issue with a couple she tried.The bike she learned on had coaster brakes, so we were worried how she would adjust to hand brakes - it never became an issue before she had it figured out. We would have liked a 7 speed (single sprocket up front), but during the first ride she already had the shifting somewhat figured out. She liked the way the grips felt - she really did not like the grips, or handle bars, on the "Cruiser" bikes. I agree, she really struggled in the store with the handle bars and hand positioning on the cruiser bikes. Overall, mom, dad, and daughter are really happy with the choice - nothing but smiles while she was riding.
