Feedback Sports Introduces Peewee Elite Bike Workstand for Kids

Feedback Sports peewee elite kids bicycle workstand

PRESS RELEASE: Feedback Sports, known for high-quality cycling products, addresses a growing 3 to 6 year-old childrens’ DIY market with introduction of an elite level bicycle work stand.

The Pee-Wee Elite is a 3-foot tall work stand optimized for repairs on 12” wheel balance bikes. The Pee-WeeElite represents the first of several new products the company is working on for this important demographic of cyclists. According to Feedback Sports Founder/President Doug Hudson, “Youth is the foundation of cycling and keeping a bicycle in good working condition is key to the experience.” In addition, Hudson mentions, “We have seen a trend in children attempting to work on their own bikes but until now there has not been a easy solution. We want to empower kids to be in charge of their bike repairs and get back on the sidewalk quickly.”

Feedback Sports is putting extensive resources behind the project including hiring several new employees and consultants. Feedback’s engineers worked diligently to optimize the design after spending months studying growth charts and focus group data from around the world.

feedback-sports-peewee-elite-youth-bike-workstand01Jeff Nitta Director of Sales & Marketing mentions, “We think this product is just the thing to spark interest in bicycle maintenance at a young age. There are over 10 million kids bikes sold in the USA each year, so we feel confident when going up against products like the iPad and Xbox.”

Sammy Rutherford, Eastern Regional Sales manager simply states, “I’m gonna sell em’.”

The Pee-WeeElite will be officially introduced to the public at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey April 10-13th at Feedback’s booth #113.

APRIL FOOLS!

and so the april fools jokes start…

I was pretty excited about this until I realised it doesn’t have their quick release clamp. It’s more of a Pee-Wee Classic stand than a Pee-Wee Elite stand.

Way better than the 650b bottom bracket…

I trust no article on this day

Dang shame that it’s April Fools’ Day. This would be as awesome as it is silly.

Very very Enduro of them.

The interwebs will be useless today…

This is awesome. Now I can tinker with my bike while laying on the couch.

i usually wrench on my bikes pretty sauced so this is perfect when sitting on the floor against the wall.

The funny thing is that I know a three year old who asks all the time to work on her balance bike in the full size work stand. She would love this!

Matthew - 04/01/14 - 11:29am

@Daniel: me too. I’ve got a feeling that this joke could actually be successful. Maybe create an adapter that allows a normal stand to be set up at half height as well? Then you only have to buy one stand, but still get the kids in on things.

Erik - 04/01/14 - 2:17pm

I know its an April fools joke, but I’d totally buy this. My 4 and 6 year old daughters are always ‘helping’ me in the garage with bike maintenence, and wanting me to work on their bikes….

Though, I could probably cut a larger stand down, or make one out of PVC….interesting….

Niko - 04/01/14 - 3:01pm

Please someone start making these..:)

Cute pic. It actually made me want one for my daughter and her little Haro. She already likes to pretend to use tools like daddy. But we have some pretty hardcore tools in the workshop. This would keep her focused on the simple stuff.

Lahrs - 04/02/14 - 12:01am

Agree with above, my daughter would love her own stand. Just this past weekend her balance bike was in the stand, she was giving all the bolts a check. “All tight Daddy, lets go ride”.

It should come with an instruction manual & video. That poor girl is going about it all wrong.
