Some may remember I was stuggling to get my lad riding without stabilizers...well, I'm still stuggling! Looking for excuses for his general lack of balance, (bit of a chip off the old block), I'm going to blame the bike!! Seriously, I may have a point. It has a long chopper style seat with a back rest and I think he is sitting far too far behind the bottom bracket.
This doesn't look like its helping so I'm after a new one for him. So, what have you got please. Being fellow retro's you know the sort of thing I'm after. Steel frame, maybe front suspension, 20" wheels and some gears!
He is five years old and will soon be 1.15 metres tall.

Can anyone help?

If you go for gears, lock them out until he is able to ride.

I found with my kids it took the right environment for them to ride, and the peer presure of having their friends ride off in to the distance with them unable to follow.
