I bought my 5 year old daughter her first proper bike last night, 20" wheel mtb and tonight after less than 5 minutes holding her she rode all the way round our local sports field unaided :D

Cant wait to get her out on the trails with me soon!

A Carrera Luna, great reviews and £25 off rrp at the moment.

Its a lovely little bike and the forks are sprung perfectly for kids.

Wow! That is a nice wee beast.

Wish I was in the market for such right now, but my cousin is so that will be a recommendation!

Great times, and there is nothing like taking the bairns out for a moonlight ride in the forest, it is magical!

We've been out again this morning, she's mastered starting and stopping and tried to lift the front end to wheelie lol.

The gears will be the next challenge.
