The quality of it is very nice, easy to fit and don't slip.
A great product.

Picked the Raleigh because it was a great price for the quality of the bike. There are some that were cheaper, but they were heavier and didn't have the quality that this one does. Pretty excited to get my daughter into biking now that she is turning 2.

After getting shit about my low cut socks in another thread, I snagged a few sets of Swiftwick w/ 4" cuffs. Super comfortable.

I think this is the most well designed frame BMC ever made.

I bought a push bike for my niece a few years ago. She never took to it but her little brother sure did. I suspect he could have been riding a pedal bike before he turned three had we let him.

Nothing Earth shattering as far as WW's go but, $20 for the stem and $100 for the NERDs was too good to pass up. Stem is a 120mm at 144g. The brakes are 197g w/o pads. I don't like the red pads but they will do for now. SwissStop Yellows will be used on the carbon.
