    Hi Phil, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. It looks like my teammate, Sam, was able to reimburse you for the shop fix and send out a replacement bike. We hope this resolved the issue. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to reach out to us! Thanks, Kaitlin @ Guardian

    After waiting nearly two months, we were really excited to receive this bike. After opening the package, we found that they had forgotten to send the pedals. That was disappointing, but the thing that disappointed me the most was the weight of the bike. This is not a light-weight bike like they advertise. This is another heavy, clunky bike made with cheap metal.

    Wheel hitting break bad, late without notice

    We ordered 2 bikes, one for my son and one for my daughter. We have had 2 Guardian Bikes previously and loved them. We got an email saying my daughters would be delayed due to a delayed part. We did not receive any communication about my sons bike being late until it was already 1-2 weeks late. Then when it arrived it was obvious that it was thrown together quickly. The wheel hits the break pad every time it rotates. We have a friend that is very handy with bikes trying to fix it for him. However, when you spend $750 on bikes you don't expect to have to fix it yourself.

    Training Wheels Compatible

    We recommend using the balance bike method when teaching your child to ride a bike, but understand all children learn differently.

    Compatible training wheels can be purchased here for our 14", 16", and 20" Bikes.
