Designed to help young riders learn to stop smoothly and effectively, the MXR 20 gives him two ways to stop: 1) coaster brakes (what he may be used to if she had a bike with training wheels previously), and 2) v-brakes or hand brakes (for him to practice stopping like mommy and daddy). The MXR 20 is a single speed (no shifting required) to keep it simple while he learns to master those brakes. A padded seat and soft grips keep him comfy while wide tires give him stability. The handy chain guard keeps his pants from getting caught up. Get him psyched for the bike on the MXR 20.
