The Opus Scout combines an ultra lightweight frame with all kinds of sturdy features. The front hand brake is easy for kids to use, the bike handles beautifully and the stylish flames are a big hit with kids. Sturdy training wheels are easy to remove with a wrench. At a slightly higher price point than other quality 16-inchers, the Opus Scout stands out by offering the lightest ride and an easy to use handbrake.

Pros

The bike is so easy to handle that Jasper comfortably starts and stops on his own. I love how lightweight this bike is. Jasper can lift it all by himself.

Cons

None. My only complaint is that Jasper rides so quickly on this bike when we go for a run/ bike that I have to sprint to keep up with him.

Ideal Rider

Four- to six-year-olds. Kids whose parents like to ride far or go for longer runs are in for a treat with this light bike that practically pedals itself.

Overall

A beautiful bike that is sturdy, lightweight and a dream to ride.
