CNOC 14 vs Hotrock 12
Our eldest made the step from Cnoc 14 to 20″ fine, and kept riding the Cnoc for ages afterwards too. But if they’re ready for pedals now and the Cnoc is too big then I’d get the Hotrock. Our youngest can ride our Cnoc 14, but is really too small to get his feet down proper on it. I can’t really justify another bike just for the few more months before he’s properly big enough for the Cnoc though!Posted 5 years agotoys19Member
My daughter went from hotrock to cnoc. Cnoc is lighter, better brakes, cranks, was way more confidence inspiring (given the way my daughter reacted).
The main thing though is the coaster brake, the child cannot set the pedals to start, this held my 5yo back, until she got on the cnoc and a lightbulb went off and away she went.
Brakes on the islabikes are awesome, she feathers her brakes and can come to a gentle stop under control, or lock up both wheels and fall off..Posted 5 years ago
I dont think I was clear in my original post, its the physical size of the CNOC I want to know about.
I want the Isla Bike I allready think its the best option, BUT its 14″ wheel versus 12″ wheel.
Tiny Tins is quite small & not yet 3, but he can pedal quite happily (with stabilizers) & is feetup even in the skatepark on the balance bike.
If I can find a pedal bike that he fits he will be able to ride it, even if I have to get a BSO for now until he fits a CNOC, so if you know of a truly small first pedal bike no matter what it is let me know.Posted 5 years ago
