Orbea of Spain has a very interesting range of aptly-named Grow bicycles, where these unique bicycles for children can be adjusted accordingly to accommodate your child’s growth spurts, allowing it to last twice as long as a regular bicycle. Of course, does this translate to half the savings? Probably not, considering the amount of money that you have to fork out in the first place, with prices starting from 179€ ($237) which is the Grow 0 bicycle that targets those aged 1.5 years to 4 years old, and going all the way to 249€ ($330) for the Grow 2 bicycle that caters for kids aged 4 to 9.
On the other hand, at least you know you are doing your part to be more sustainable and less wasteful. Hopefully these bicycles are able to stand up to the rigors of an active child, as you know how the little ones can get really active – possibly ruining a bicycle that is built in a non-robust manner all too soon. I am quite taken by the design cues that Orbea applies to the Grow bicycle range though.
