Go faster, handle harder, enjoy more.

Put all the engineering packed into our remarkable Seeker 16 to work. Let your kids enjoy finding the edge with a geometry that is stable yet responsive, controllable yet fast. Watch them reap the benefits from the unerring drive and immediate pick up of our four bearing cassette hub as they climb out of the saddle. Envy the lines they stick that you wouldn't pick thanks to the 2.25 balloon mud tyres that let them coast over bumps and jumps you know'd you'd feel. See their confidence grow with the Ritchey Logic controls and powerful, easy pull short lever V brakes. Let them hammer the trails in whatever conditions the weather throws - and revel in the fact that the bearings in the hubs, the pedals, the bottom bracket and the headset are all sealed cartridges, the greaseless all aluminium drive train and frames just needs a rinse and if they blow on the ride you only have to carry a bike that weighs in at just 13.10 lbs. 

PERFORMANCE, DURABILITY AND CHEAP, PICK TWO.

Producing a bike that performs to inspire but at a justifiable cost is a balancing act when it may be enjoyed by your child for only a couple of years.  We work tirelessly to garner value with every penny we invest and where possible we only invest in value that can be retained. Our finish is brushed aluminium because it carries the scratches and dings beautifully. It's gender neutral too, so it can be passed on to both boys and girls. We exceptionally rarely have new model years, preferring to refine instead so that when a bike is passed on it's still current. We invest in weight saving components that others don't (hollow axles, external cup bottom brackets, CNC'd aluminium hubs, butted tubes, cold forged cranks) as it allows us to use high performance and incredibly durable components that others won't (cartridge bearings in all moving parts, our forged sliding drop outs, a 4-bearing cassette hub, an all aluminium drive train) and this is how we end up with bikes that are not only market leading by weight and by function, but also promise the durability that mean they can benefit the second or third owner as much as they did the first.

Quality bike, built to last.

My 5 year old loves her new bigger bike, we had the seeker 14 before. The factory seconds offer a slight bargain but the condition it came in was as new. Very happy.

Off on his pedals in 15 mins

I was told about Early Rider by a friend as I was considering the other bike as light as this one that we tried at the Alexandra Palace bike show. After speaking with the team and looking at the bike I was sold simply on the parts and sheer retro look. We tried to get my 3-year-old riding several other pedal bikes to no avail but this bike he was off in 15 mins, now I get to ride with my son which is super surreal! Totally recommend the bikes and the customer service.

Great bike

This is our second Early Rider purchase and we couldn't be happier. Our first bike was the Bigfoot which really eased the transition to hand controlled brakes after being on a Strider. I was amazed at the quality of the bike and the attention to detail in pre-assembly. It took only a few minutes to assemble the bike and double check torque specs on the pre-adjusted bolts. Everything was up to spec and working as designed out of the box which was greatly appreciated. It was also nice to have a variety of reflectors included in the box.

The transition from the Bigfoot to the Seeker 16 went very smoothly. Our son seemed extremely confident right away. He literally got on the bike and took off. He got tired a ways into the ride and had to carry the bike. A light bike for kids isn't only good for performance, its also good for parents who end up carrying the bikes too. We are all excited for the bike to get more use in the years ahead.

Great all around for our 4 year old

Easy setup. quick shipping from OR to SF. Our son loved his early rider balance bike and took to this right away (after riding another brand’s 14 in pedal bike). I was worried the mtb setup might be hard for him, but it’s perfect and he loves riding on both dirt and pavement.
