Konga Bicycles Balance Bike Oct 31, 2015

When Antti from Konga Bicycles‘ daughter wanted to learn to ride a bike he couldn’t just go out and buy her a balance bike he had to make her one. Granted he didn’t have to make her something this beautiful, but as both a builder and a father his creative ability and aesthetic eye got the best of him. This thing looks amazing with the sparkle powedercoat, segmented fork, Chris King and those curvy stays… Check out more photos below.

  • This is so adorable. So much craftsmanship in such a small bike.

  • ROTOMON

    That is one sweet balance bike!

    Aww, that is so sweet. I recall the guy behind Kumo cycles make something similar.

      Would be cool to see more builder kids bikes (like the Tomii).

        The red Kumo is my daughters bike.

        Keith did a great job building it, the Velopaint paintjob is mint and it was a labour of love getting all the parts together for it.

          Awesome and I hope she’s ripping about on it. Yeah Simon does good work, mine is the gold CX he featured. Kumo is definitely on the very short list for another bike, this time local.

    You’d never let that bike go would you. Brilliant:

    Stunning rig! My $0.02 is that it’s only missing a hand brake. My kid is on a Cleary bike for that reason and I think he’s happier for it, better control = more fun.

    If these bespoke kid bikes need to find new tiny hands to appreciate and use them, my daughter would be happy to give them that love in a year or two. We’d welcome a hand-me-down!
