When the thought of getting my baby girl her first bike first came to mind, buying one already prefabricated was not an option. Im sure there are a bunch of balance bikes out there that are more than good enough for its purpose. However, I told myself how can I not build my child’s first bike, and create a more everlasting experience? The process was intense. I had to improvise the whole operation from beginning to end. There is no current frame or fork jig that would accommodate such a small rig. It was a real learning experience on patience and creativity. In the end, the little monster came out better than I initially expected. Results, a happy child and a very grateful dad.


  • Custom frame, fork and handlebar/stem combo to her current height and reach
  • Completely brass brazed, hand selected lightweight tubing
  • Custom 3 color powder coat paintjob
  • Very happy child :)
