2018 Ridgeback Melody 16"


The Melody may well be your girl's first proper bike after a balance bike like a Scoot and is suitable for 4 to 6 year olds. It's very light with quality components: V-brakes front and rear, with reach-adjustable brake levers, which should stop her well, but not too suddenly! This is where confidence is built and skills developed.

The bike is now supplied with stabilisers, which makes the bike ideal for kids who haven't yet mastered the art of the balance bike, or, we'll happily remove them!

Ridgeback kid's bikes are simple, high quality and dependable machines which will encourage confident and competent cycling from the earliest age.

Starting with pedal-less balance bikes, they are all based on on a strong and very light aluminium frame. Specification is reassuringly simple, but high quality where it matters. Your child will also be able to reach the brake levers as we pre-adjust them as appropriate. More gears as they get bigger, but not too many.

As with the adult bikes, colours are simple and unfussy.
