Belter 20

TOO COOL FOR JUST SCHOOL.

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 51 reviews

BEAUTIFUL CLEAN LINES, BEAUTIFUL CLEAN BELT DRIVE, KID PROOF 4 SPEED HUB, AND FEATHERWEIGHT FRAME SET. THE RANGE AND COMFORT TO ADVENTURE WAY BEYOND SCHOOL AND BACK.

PURE (EUROBIKE) GOLD.

In 2015 we became the only kids bike manufacturer ever to win the coveted Eurobike Gold award with our first 20" belt drive. Seven years (and four revisions) later, we still stand alone and so does our Belter 20. The winning formula? Innovation, performance, practicality, comfort and control.

And with good reason too; the rides are getting longer, the routes more demanding and the everyday need to be tearing round the neighbourhood, off the charts.

Upgrade from 16' to the 20'

After 3 years with the 16', time to upgrade! No words to describe the happiness of my son Gui when he received it! Just "plug and ride"! Outstanding quality as expected and the gears in such bike are just a perfect fit! No complication for the small ones! I can only recommend because you will see the difference in the kids evolution from the 1st second on it! Now, my little one Emma toke the 16' and was, "seat&ride"! No side wheels needed ;) thanks Early Rider for such an amazing product! Cheers, Fernando

almost perfect bike

This is our second early rider and probably not the last. Great light bike, but the metal pedals have very sharp edges (plastic pedals on the belter 16 are perfect) and downshifting is very hard, my son has to stop and shift with both hands. The design of the grip does not help this much. However, the positives certainly prevail.

I certainly do not regret the purchase :)

Awesome bike but could be refined a bit

This is our 4th ER, we've had 2 striders and 2 pedal bikes for my 3 boys. I was on the fence about getting this or going to a Seeker 20 (or Woom Off 4). I decided to give this a try and see if it could be a less expensive alternative to a full-on mountain bike. We ride trails but our green mtb trails are very smooth and flowy. I wasn't quite ready to go for 8 gears and hydraulic brakes on the kids bikes though.

My main complaint is the shifter - it's just too stiff downshifting. I took it apart and lubed the cable and the rear guide. It felt a bit easier for me, but still way too hard for the kids. They can shift it up, but for riding trail this won't be sufficient.

I don't know if the gears are quite low enough. I did the math before I bought this and I thought 1st might be low enough to climb easy trails - with the seeker 16 single-speed they cannot make it up much of an incline and that's about like 3rd gear on this. It might be OK. I feel like 4th is a little tall though for a small kid - I feel like the 4 speed range is very usable, but it would be nice to have the overall a little lower. And unfortunately not an easy change with a belt drive.

I had planned to change the tires for knobs - and was leaning toward a 2.25 because that is what they were used to riding, but based on the offset in the gear hub, it doesn't look like I will have clearance. I hope a 1.95 knobby will fit back there. Front should be fine. The stock tires are OK I guess, but I…

Early Rider Belter 20

Richtig tolles Fahrrad. Leicht und stabil. Wir hatten schon alle Laufräder und die Fahrräder in 14 und 16 Zoll. Für uns kommt kein anderer Hersteller in Frage. Immer zufrieden und super Fahrspaß für die Kinder. Die Fahrräder sind so robust, dass mehrere Geschwister damit fahren können.

Dennoch diesmal kleine Sachen zu bemängeln.

Die Pedale sind Vollmetall und sehr stabil. Für Kinder finde ich die aber nicht optimal. Kurz mal umgekippt und die Pedale schleifen über den Asphalt. Da können Metallsplitter entstehen.

Das Belter 20 ist das erste Fahrrad mit Gangschaltung. Es ist eine Nabenschaltung mit vier Gängen. Zum Drehen am Griff. Hochschalten leicht auch von unserem Jungen beim Fahren. Leider schafft er das Zurückschalten nicht. Da muss selbst ich als Erwachsener fest zupacken. Für einen Sechsjährigen nicht zu schaffen.

Dafür leider Punktabzug.
