Yuba Flip Flop Fits Bronte!

A few days ago I headed over to what I think of as Bicycle Row (all the bike shops around Manitoba & Broadway) for a little shopping. We went into the Bike Doctor first to look at Abus locks. I picked up one of their massive U-locks for my regular bike & as a secondary lock for the Yuba, plus a Knog lock for Linnaeus' bike.

They had a Yuba Flip Flop in, so I had to take a look at it--I've never seen one in person & they look like a great balance bike. The amazing thing we discovered was that the seat can go low enough for Bronte to have her feet comfortably flat on the ground. Pretty amazing given that she's not even 32" tall. We have looked at quite a few different runner bikes & only one or two were short enough for her to ride comfortably.

The Yuba Flip Flop has a longer wheelbase than most balance bikes that size & of course, since it's made by a cargo bike company, features a little (but sturdy) cargo rack on the rear. They retail for about $180, which is a bit beyond impulse purchase territory, but I was sorely tempted.
