Five Inches of Travel For Junior? Canfield’s Prototype KDH Bike Makes It Happen
There are kids’ bikes and then there are kids’ bikes. Canfield Brothers‘ latest creation would certainly qualify for that second category with an impressive 5″ of travel squeezed into a frame that looks like it is rolling 20″ wheels. Other companies like Lil’ Shredder offer seriously capable kids’ full suspension bikes with up to 5″ of travel, but if the Canfield does have 20″ wheels, it would be one of the first.
Called the KDH, as in Kids’ Down Hill, the bike is currently a prototype that Canfield was showing off at the Duthie hill Demo recently in Issaquah, Washington. Set up as a single speed, the KDH likely has a concentric BB pivot to prevent chain growth. One thing’s for sure, when the KDH hits production, some super lucky kids will have the raddest kids’ bike in the neighborhood.
