You get what you pay for, cheaply made. Only one break which is located at the front. The stabilisers are very very delicate, this meaning if you have a bit of s dare devil child that's learning to ride it wouldn't be good for them, the stabilisers kept bending. The hand grips on the handlebars were extremely hard on the skin, bearing in mind this bike is aimed at beginners who are nervous so they are going to cling on for dear life! The saddle wouldn't stay in the same position even upon tightening. Very stiff and sticky chain which meant it was hard for my young son to pedle . Upon investigating this I found it difficult to spin the pedals around to make the chain go round and I'm a fully grown adult, there's no hope! We took this product to the bootsale and bought our son a different make. Wasn't impressed at all. Poor value.
