Go grease lightning! Mini biker dude Kingston Rossdale was spotted rolling the trendy Skuut down the sidewalk of an LA park yesterday.
Called a loopfiet, the walking bikes teach children to maneuver a bike’s frame using the power of their own feet. A child sits on the frame and moves his or her feet in a running motion to get the bike to go. In doing so, the wee ones develop balance, steering, and coordination.
The walking bike phenomenon has been big in the US for the past year. Though several brands are popular, Skuut ($82 on Amazon) is one of the most prominent. Made in Marin County, CA, out of solid wood, the Skuut has an adjustable padded cotton seat, inflated rubber tires, and only weighs 10.5 pounds, so it is portable. If you're looking for more pimped out wheels, consider the Wishbone bike or one of the models below.
