With the E-450x3i frame Byk customise each tube to reduce weight and improve handling. Another crucial ingredient to the clever design is the improved control and bump dampening ability of our CRM forks - giving a dramatic advantage in handling and comfort. This E-450 has no external gear parts you can damage - for kids who will treat it rough! Whilst you are still learning to handle your bike and gears, you also have a foot brake as well.
We know that kids love the idea of gears, but they give them a tough time! So, Byk have created a model with the super cool Shimano internal 3 speed gears for those early learners who are still treating their bike rough but want to learn and play with gears. Their unique design offers a longer chain length, helping with chain flex. Then used direct pulling 1:1 Shimano gears - fantastic because every movement in the lever reflects the same movement in the derailler. Also, by using a cassette hub, we have eliminated cluster wobble and the demons of throwing chains off gears.
To make a children's bike safe, the rider needs to be able to brake efficiently and confidently. The custom-sized V-Brakes we have used are calibrated for age, ability, and ergonomic fit. And they are made of non-flexing, strong and light alloy. The light weight alloy rims ensure pedalling is easier. But more importantly alloy rims are a more efficient braking surface than cheaper, chrome-plated steel rims, and are therefore safer.
