A great choice for teaching your youngster to ride a bike, the BMX-style 16-inch Scorcher bike from Schwinn features a grown-up look that's great for showing off around the neighborhood. It's outfitted with hybrid slick tires for a good grip over any surface, front pegs (just like a real BMX bike), an enclosed chain guard to help prevent snags and dirty pants cuffs. The coaster-style brakes make stopping a breeze for new cyclists, and the Scorcher also includes both front and rear caliper brakes which allows the child to learn how to use handbrakes safely. Other features include training wheels for stability while learning and a comfortably padded BMX-style seat that's easily adjustable with the quick realease lever. Recommended for ages 3 to 6.
