I have to admit, I opened this press release early today and was simply giddy. Being state side it has been difficult to find great kids bikes that will last, aren’t 45lbs and don’t cost $1500+. Hopefully Velorbis will deliver in the US and live up to the Velorbis name!
Velorbis believes that cycling is an activity that all family members and friends can partake in to enjoy quality time together or use to simply get from A to B, regardless of age, as an important and enjoyable element of everyday life. Now children can cycle in Velorbis style too.

Updated Strider ST-4 Details
Strider’s are my favorite thing to sell in a bike shop. Helping kids skip the training wheels (or lose the training wheels) and enjoy the freedom that two wheels gives you. Strider is on it’s 4th version, each one getting better and better. The latest ST-4 has many updates, a few of them I think will rock kids and parents.
