Kids grow up too fast. Literally. For the first 6 - 10 years of their life, kids are like weeds. It's all parents can do to keep them in clothes and toys that fit their size. This often results in wasted money and a pile of donations for the thrift store. Until now.
There might not be too much we can do to keep them from out growing their pants and shirts, but Spanish bike manufacturer Orbea may have found an answer to the outgrown bike problem. Their line of Grow Bikes - as the name suggests - grow along with your child and allowing them to be used for twice as long as regular bikes.
Now almost all bikes come with an adjustable seat and handlebars, but Grow Bikes add another variable into the mix--the frame itself. With a few minutes of adjusting, the Grow Bike frame can be extended, making the bike safer and more comfortable for your growing child, and buying you another year or two before you have to replace it with a larger model.
Prices range from €179 (about $237) to €259 (about $343) depending on which model and features you want. Pricier than a Huffy, but remember you're really paying for multiple bikes. Pedal over to Orbea.com to learn more.
