This is the rookie a handbike built for a boy of five. The boy has extremely short legs, around 30cm. The goal was to construct a flashy vehicle for young kids, not a ‘disabled-looking’ bike.

Steering, pedalling and braking are all done with the hands and are very quick to learn. The transmission section is extendable, so the bike will remain in use until he is around 11 years old. The trike is also easy to transport and to store because of the quick release-wheels and the removable front-end.
