Classically modern and functionally sophisticated, the ‘Alley Runner’ by Early Rider is every bike junkies’ pre-school dream come true. Built with a hand-brushed and lacquered aluminium frame on high-profile air tyres, the Alley Runner is a dream on wheels topped off with a carbon fibre seat post and a faux-leather riveted saddle. Weighing only a mere 7.9 lb, the Alley Runner is designed to ride as well as it looks. Quick and responsive, the Alley Runner comes complete with sealed bearings, integrated threadless aluminium headset and narrow carbon fibre handlebars.
The Best Bikes for Pre-schooler kids aged 3 ½ and up
By 3 ½ kids typically need a bike as close to a real bike as possible. While foam or hard rubber tyres are still durable enough for pre-schoolers, there is a lot to be said of the increased traction and “bike-like” feel that a good Balance Bike with air tyres can offer. Hand brakes are also a bonus, as most kids can fully utilize them by the age of four.
