    Awesome! Is he on the oset 12.0? We're getting ready to buy our 5yo his first bike and are looking at the oset 16.

    Oset 12.5r. With aftermarket lipo battery from boost bikes; longer run time and, more importantly, lighter by maybe 8lbs. Switched bars to some old carbon fiber mtb bars that I cut down. The oset is fantastic. I can't say enough good things about them. Almost zero maintenance. Great torque. One of the best things is riding in the park since it is silent. It is so burly that I sometimes ride it back to the car/ truck when son and mom have bailed to the swingset :).

    The power dial and response dial are key for controlling the speed and acceleration slope. I have them both turned way down. The bike will pull me at around 10 mph (guessing) on flat grass.

    Our son rides his oset at our local peewee track with his 7yo 'girlfriend' who rides a pw50. It is a blast. I'd post a pic but I don't think my friend would want his daughters pic on the interwebs.

    Feel free to PM with any questions or phone.

    The days after rain and snow are the BEST track days.

    First time out of the front yard on the Oset 16! Almost couldn't get him off it for dinner. He did hot laps of the campsite until he killed the battery. Started out at foot-dragging pace and sped things up at his own pace. I'm pretty proud

    Oh HELL YEAH!!! Stoke!

    boost bikes UK makes a lipo battery plug in play for the oset that will greatly extend ride time and decrease weight.

    We'll probably get there at some point. I think we were working with a partial charge and imbalanced batteries that trip. I charged them each separately on a battery tender - we'll see if that improves range.

    More bobblehead pics - first time out on the road with his Mama and Papa! Just a couple FS roads in the Bighorn Mountains!

    Confirmation he's my son came when he aimed for all the puddles and the biggest rocks. Silly kid! Crashed twice, had a few tears and a couple hugs and hopped right back on :)
