Modified Dakar 612 kids bike. This was originally a Merida Dakar 612 (12 inch wheels) kids bike. I made the following modifications: Removed coaster brake as I consider this absolute nonsense and actually dangerous to let kids get used to coaster brakes when it is clear that their next bike wont have one! Replaced both coaster and original front brake with higher quality and more powerful Contec brakes and Shimano flat bar road bike brake levers to work with this style brakes. These are modified for small hands and both our kids could easily use them at age 3. I installed red aluminum spoke nipples for cooler look and lower weight, Schwalbe Black Jack tires (lightest kids bike tires known to me), lightwight red anodized seat clamp, new seat with aluminum seat post, new grips. The frame and fork are 6061 T6 aluminum. The bike is pretty light at roughly 13 pounds. This is not superlight, but lighter than most readily available bikes in this size that are all surprisingly heavy. Please compare! The bike has custom Evel Knievel inspired graphics (or Captain America, if your Kid prefers)! It is a nice first bike. We do not have the training wheels, as both our kids had balance bikes before and started riding at age 3 without training wheels.

Local pick up in Canton, MI preferred.
Shipping is possibile, but I would have to figure out packaging and shipping rates first.

Best regards, Tadek
