Should You Upgrade to the Woom 2 Freewheel Kit? (YES!)

February 28, 2019

First pedal bikes for kids (and adults) are very exciting. We receive a lot of questions about our favorite first pedal bike, the woom 2 14" kid's bike.

Some of these questions include: Are handbrakes important on a kid's bike? What is a coaster brake? Why should you get the freewheel upgrade on the woom 2? How difficult is the woom 2 freewheel kit to install? We talk about this and more in this video.

I strongly believe in hand brakes for kids but due to outdated CPSC rules, any kid's bikes with alow seat heights have to come equipped with coaster brakes. The woom 2 14" kid's bike falls into this category so they sell a $20 upgrade to a new wheel (includes tire and tube). Let's talk about why that matters to your kid's biking and what the installation of this new wheel looks like.

 

Did you know Bike Shop Girl is one of the only woom bike dealers in the world? Learn more about woom and our partnership here.

You can find the woom 2 bikes here.

Disclaimer: Bike Shop Girl is a woom kids' bike dealer but we are a dealer because I believe their bikes are some of the best kids' bikes available.
