"Best decision I have ever made purchasing this bike!...All I wanted to see my entire life is to see my son enjoy/embrace the things like riding a bike that make for great memories as a child. Now has this opportunity thanks to you all!!"

"Riding the Buddy Bike can be empowering for a child/adult with special needs."

Kruno. O.

"I just want you to know that the bike is the real deal. My 9 year old autistic son loves it. It's a solid, well built bike and if your son likes to ride a bike, this will be perfect. By the way, I don't get anything back from praising the bike, my reward is a happy child."
