- BALANCE BIKES
- PEDAL BIKES
- BIKES BY AGE
My distributor refers to them as the “Rockstar” of balance bikes. I happen to agree with his spot on claim. Why do we love the Scoot balance bikes so much and even claim them to be the best balance bike available? It’s fairly easy: they are real bikes from a respected bike company that knows a lot about making quality bicycles for all types of uses.
Let me divulge a little and give you a background on Ridgeback the company. Ridgeback is a UK company that traces it roots back to 1983. Their range of bikes go from flat bar road bikes to commuter bikes to mountain bikes to kids bikes. In 1983 Ridgeback was the first mountain bike available in the UK. In 1990 Ridgeback introduced the Roxy – the flat bar commuter bikes that serves as a benchmark to today’s bikes. The Roxy is the foundation for their modern day Metro series. They continue to stay perched among the most respected bike companies with their lines of street commuter, road mountain bikes and several variations like 29ers, drop bar road bikes and of course their children’s bikes like the Dimension line and Scoot balance bikes.
So, with a history of making bikes for over 33 years; these guys have bike building down to a science. So, when they launched their Scoot balance bike they didn’t just slap together a toy to get in on the craze of balance bikes – they made a real bike that had to be a high enough standard to wear the Ridgeback badge. Aluminum frame, internally routed cables, direct pull rear “v” brakes, steel fork and a sealed headset.
