For 2012, Novara has released a new 24in mountain bike for kids called Ponderosa. This rugged machine features a strong suitably and sized 6061 aluminum frame. To reduce weight without compromising the strength, the frame is double-butted meaning it is narrow toward the middle and thick at the ends.
Perfect fit and reliable comfort is given by the Velo Junior saddle to the small frame of the Ponderosa. Function and durability are nicely balanced by the SRAM 3.0 derailleurs. To make its stopping power reliable and fast, the bike has Tektro linear-pull brakes.
Smaller adults and children can ride singletrack comfortably with the 2012 Novara Ponderosa 24in Mountain Bike for Kids. Lugged and durable, the Wellgo platform pedals provide a good grip to the shoes of the small rider, whether it is for flat-land speed or hill climbing.
