If you have a toddler who is just starting to be interested in upgrading from a basic trike to something a little more serious, then the Scott Voltage JR 12 Inch is arguably the Rolls Royce of kids’ bikes. Although its diminutive size and bright colour make it look a world away from the adult bikes upon which it is based it still has the same foundations in sensible design and high quality components. This does come at a price that may not suit all wallets but if you think your child is going to get thoroughly involved with cycling at a later stage, this could be a great platform upon which to build their confidence and develop skills.

Scott Voltage JR 12 Inch 2011 Overview

Given its price, you will not be surprised to see that the Scott Voltage JR 12 inch has plenty of components which will help it last for a long time, no matter how much punishment it takes. It has an alloy frame with octagon tubing, with the fortitude of a much larger bike and with brands like Tektro featured in its design, you can tell that no expense has been spared. The inclusion of training wheels is ideal for the intended age group of two to four years old as they will be able to enjoy a shallow learning curve at first and ride with stability before having the wheels removed once they are old enough to try riding on two wheels.

With its fireapple red paint job and the graffiti style Scott branding on the frame and chain guard, this is an eye-catching bike that is sure to appeal to youngsters. Chunky wheels and a chunky frame will help to provide a stable base for chubby little legs to get working and eventually develop into mini pistons of power.
