    • A. It has both handbrakes and coaster (pedal backwards) brakes. The handbrakes are small and easy enough for our 6 1/2yr old, but 18" may be big for a 5yr old. Depending on his height and how far along he is on learning you may want to start with a 16" bike.

    • A. If it doesn't list Coaster brakes in the product description likely it's handbrakes. Most 18" bikes I've looked at have hand brakes.

    • A. Yes, as long as your 8 year old does not exceed the weight limit for the bike, it would be fine. I think it has a 75 pound limit, but check online. There are very little differences between this 18 inch bike and the 20 inch bike, but this one comes with training wheels and two types of braking systems for learners. If you buy this for an 8 year old, he will only use it for a year. Once his legs grow the muscles needed to pedal up to speed you can take off the training wheels and learn to balance within a week or less. You can buy him a fancy bike after he has used this one for a year. This is a great starter bike.

    • A. the bike is small enough to learn how to ride a 2 wheeler. Kids feel more in control..However, once he learns on this, an 8-9 year old will out grow it almost immediately. look for a 20 inch bike and buy separate training wheels

    • A. Definitely. It comes with training wheels if you need them. And both handbrakes and coaster brakes. If you can, have him stand over someone elses 20" bike (the most common bigger kid bike size) to check the size, but we found that a 16" bike was too small and a 20" bike too big.

    Well it was easy to set up till it came to the brakes and now we can't get them to go on the back brakes we can get together but then when you use them they stick then the front brakes the cable won't reach also there is this weird metal loop thing behind both sets of brakes and its not mentioned in the instructions what so ever so we can't figure out if it goes there or not also when I tried to look up a instruction video there isn't one and when I go to the Kent website they say they don't have this bike in the search so if anyone has this bike or has put it together please help LOL

    This bike is beautiful! ! It looks so expensive and it was actually very affordable. My son loves it. It was easy to assemble too even though the instructions were terrible. But I would definitely recommend buying this bike.

    A real solid bike. Had it delivered to a vacation house and now our son wants to ship it back home cause its better than the one we have there. It includes both handbrakes (which are easy to squeeze) and coaster brakes. Great styling (love the red rims on the tires). Both kickstand and training wheels if still needed. Has those front wheel stunt bars too (although young kids don't need those!). A nice 18" bike like this can be hard to find - sometimes 20" is still too big and 16" too small. The store will assemble, but if you do it you'll need a phillips screwdriver (just for the reflectors), hex keys (allen wrenches) to tighten the handlebars, a pair of pliers for the brake cables (vise grips are great here) and wrenches (a small crescent wrench is great) for the tires, pedals, and handlebar stem. It is partially assembled out of the box and goes together fast. (A good thing to also do is loosen and align the brake pads with the tire rims and then tighten again.) Don't forget to also pick up a bike helmet and add a little bell for safe riding. If there is a chance of riding at dusk or on roads add some high vis LED lights too.

    I read and re-read all of the reviews on this bicycle. With the majority of the reviews being good, I shrugged off the poor reviews and purchased it anyway. Well that turned and bit me. There were a small number of reviews that said the front forks came bent, the tire would not fit properly. Not only was this true for me, I had to take the front fork off and put it in a vice to open it enough for the BENT front rim to fit. The rear rim was also bent when it arrived. I took them both to my local bike shop, had the rims straightened ($10) and replaced the "freestyle" style tires with ones that actually gripped dirt ($40). The rear wheel bearings also seem to add too much friction, instead of free spinning it seems to not spin very fluidly. Putting it all back together was simple, the brakes are tricky to realign and tough to get a proper fit. My son likes the frame color and with the new tires and 2 hours of dad fix-its, it seems much much bettter than when it came. So be aware, either spend the extra money and get a better bike (even though KENT is a decent brand), or realize you get what you pay for.

    I am currently in Afghanistan and my son told me he needed a new bike. I was impressed with how the whole process went from the easy ordering to the early delivery. My son loves the bike and it is working well for him. His grandmother can barely keep him off of it.

    We bought this bike online after much comparison shopping for our son's 7th birthday and had it shipped to and assembled at the Monroe,NY Walmart. They did a great job putting it together and the bike meets all of our expectations-great quality, very sturdy, nice looking boys bike! My son loves his new bike! Overall - a very positive buying experience!

    I had to replace his 16 inch bike that he out grew, and I was tempted to get him a 20 inch bike and let him grow into it. Then, we tried a few bikes in the store and found that this really was the best fit. We adjusted the seat as low as it could go so he could comfortably reach the ground. my son is about 47 to 48 inches tall. This gave me confidence that the bike was adjustable if he grew a few inches within 2-3 years. This bike comes with training wheels which we needed, and it has two different brake systems for kids who are learning. It has the standard pedal backwards to brake, and the handle bar brakes that kids need to learn now, as the next size bike will only come with that. So this was a great size and has lots of needed options for learners. So we got it home and tried it out right away. As my son got dressed to go out, I quickly removed more than half the stickers that are all over the bike. There are just too much decorations and I am glad they were removable stickers. We just left the big ones on the main body. So the 4 start rating was just for the appearance of the bike. The color is a bland grey with too many stickers. Meanwhile, we love the red-wall wheels. That is a nice touch for kids. The bike came to us already assembled by Walmart and yet still needed to be adjusted in order to ride it. On our first ride, my son wiped out in the street, and the bike got quite scratched up. It's not broken and he was not injured. But the durability of the bike leaves a little to be desired. We did check bike shops to find a better quality bike before making this purchase. But, spending $300 for a bike that my kid will probably out grow in a couple years, didn't seem smart. He would have a few wipe outs and scratches regardless. I spent less than $75 on this bike and it is good enough for the 2 to 3 years that he will use it. He's not riding to school yet, but maybe next year he may, and this bike will do the trick. It was a good purchase and I would recommend it.

    The bike is heavy but my kid loves it. Just be sure to inspect the bike throughly befor leaving the store. I did the site to store option and the bike they had ready for me had busted a reflector. Ok otherwise.
