Propain Frechdax Test Review Enduro Kinderbike Enduro Mountainbike Magazin MTB Bike Kids_01-15

After we reported about the brand new Propain Kids Mountain Bike so called “Frechdax” last year, we couldn’t resist taking it on the trails and smashing it through the woods. Phil, nearly 140cm tall, 7 years old, youngest member of the Stuttgarter Hardness and born madman insists on wearing only a T-Shirt, despite it being little more than ten degrees outside. Luckily, his mum was not there to watch the spectacle.
