    Tight brakes but otherwise fantastic

    I have boys on the autism spectrum and they had trouble with other bikes and they would rather jump off the bike into the grass rather than use traditional bikes. So I ****** it up and spent the money on a Guardian bike and I’m glad I did. When we put the bike together the breaks were too tight to attach and we had to carefully loosen them to get it connected which made me nervous since I didn’t want to mess up the braking system. But it ended up working brilliantly. We ended up buying another bike for my other son and it had the same problem of the brakes being too tight to connect. I looked it up and saw people complaining about the brakes snapping probably because they didn’t loosen them. Both my bikes function perfectly and have given both my spectrum boys independence. Very happy with the bikes.

    very good customer service

    Great customer service but our bike arrived with one brake pad off of the front tire. Luckily I noticed the little pieces in the box and was able to save them and call in and ask about it but still a little worried I didn't quite put it all back together again and will take it to get checked out at a local shop before really letting our kiddo cruise around.

    Excellent bike for older kids!

    This is our 2nd Guardian bike and I love it just as much as the first one. I was so glad that they made this next bigger size. My daughters are 10 and 12 and both ride it comfortably. I just wish there were more color options.

    our 3rd Guardian bike!

    i received a pre-order email about the 26" bike which came at a perfect time as my oldest child was outgrowing the 24" bike. when i pre-ordered in Oct, shipment was estimated around mid-December per the website, which was accurate. assembly was easy as usual. two issues existed: 1) the front brake cable wasn't connected, so the lack of tension caused immediate braking on the front wheel. for someone not super knowledgable on bike repairs, it was easy to spot and fix. 2) the stock seat was angled downwards and not parallel to the ground, so my child felt slipping towards the front of the bike while riding. i noticed it, too. (we didn't have this issue with our 20" or 24" bikes.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
