    Just bought one this weekend for my 7 year old lad, these things are amazing.

    He'd never ridden a powered two wheeler before, within half an hour he was riding quite confidently up and down the garden, over a concrete block and a hastily constructed small see-saw. They have a hidden adjustable speed controller so you can limit the top speed, very necessary as the will do up to 17 mph. It's light enough to fit on the cycle carrier on the back of the van and being electric it's near silent so doesn't annoy the neighbours.

    We seem to be getting a good 5 + hours of continuous stop start riding before the batteries start to go flat.

    The new 16.0 OSET does have higher amperage batteries that last longer. I have the 12.5 and 16.0 for my 3 and 5 year olds. I cannot say enough good things about the bikes. I have been riding them myself at 165 lbs, for almost 2 years now. I have a ton of tips on making them better which I shared on trialscentral, but a lot of these are no longer necessary as the newer bikes are improved versions from what I got.

    I ride my mountain bike to singletrack from my house, and the kids are able to ride with me.

    Price shipped to PHX by Xmas? My boy's turning 5 in February.

    Is there an adult version out there?

    Cheers

    I'd like to see one of these in person as well. I think my boy would really have a blast on one of these.

    Sorry about the ignoring the thread. I've been so slammed the last few months I forgot about it.

    I have two bikes at my own house that anyone is welcome to try out if you're in the Puget Sound area. One is the 16" and one is the 12.5" (has training wheels on it but I can take them off). PM me if you're interested.

    Anybody interested in getting one of these under their tree? $100 off any bike and 15% off parts (like a cool custom color graphics kit for your little one) through Christmas. PM me if you're interested.

    I have a 3 yr old.
    Bought him a PW 50 2 yrs ago, with an eye on the future. He has yet to ride it alone, but I saw the OSET's about 3-4 months ago online, and now am selling the PW50 to buy an OSET.

    Please PM me a price for the smallest one you sell, with your discount applied pls....I'd love to get one under the xmas tree......with training wheels.... Shipped to my teammate's place in Niagara Falls NY. (14304)
