Every Jamis kids’ bike uses size-specific items at every contact point, with grips, saddles and cranks that are scaled appropriately for each frame size to maximize comfort and control. We sweat the details, too, with features like high-quality polyethylene and polyurethane foam saddles that won’t pack down and bottom out, grippy saddle top surfaces with slick sides that won’t chafe young thighs, and we use tough handlebar grips with enough give for comfort, but afford a secure grip for small fingers.
And our bikes are built to last so they’ll be good down the road, and for the inevitable hand-me-down. We know kids’ bikes spend a lot of days (and nights) outside, and with all that aluminum you won’t run into the rust problems you’d have with a steel bike. Black electroplate on the steel parts we do use is much more chip-resistant than paint, helps retard rusting, and is much more environmentally friendly than chrome plate.
