Giant's XTC Jr. 24 Lite will spur a sense of adventure in your young rider. It features a lightweight aluminum frame, a 7-speed drivetrain with a reliable, intuitive Shimano twist shifter, and trusty linear-pull brakes. Dirt-loving, grippy 24-inch tires handle all types of terrain. The low top tube makes getting on and off a breeze, the kickstand makes parking easy and a bell lets everyone know the bike is rolling through.
Back wheel had something wrong internally so it was super loud when the back wheel turned. The mechanic thankfully replaced it with another one in stock and my daughter is in love with this bike. It is super comfortable for her. And she can reach the ground while sitting on the bike seat. She is a beginner and doesn't know the art of balance yet. With this bike I am sure she will achieve that. This bike is a perfect entry level bike! I love how lite weight the bike is to put into the trunk of the car. We looked at possibly 8 other bikes and I bought a commute bike for her. But she felt the wheels were too high for her at this time. So that is why this 24" wheel based bike is so perfect for her. So now she will have a bike for school and one when she comes visit home. Giant makes great bikes and I have bought their bikes since 1984!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
