The fabulous design and construction of the LIKEaBIKE is credited to Kokua Holzspielzeug, a small business run by the Mertens family in Roetgen, Germany. The Mertens realised that the best way for a child to learn to cycle is not to use stabilisers, which simply prevent the child developing a proper sense of balance, but to remove the cranks entirely and use their feet for stability. They replaced the traditional steel frame with a lightweight wooden one and created LIKEaBIKE, the perfect trainer wooden bike.
Kokua LIKEaBIKE Mountain (Special Edition) – Chocolate
This delightful LIKEaBIKE special edition is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.
The chocolate trim is a first for LIKEaBIKE. This includes a mocca brown leather saddle, chocolate brown felt in the front fork, chocolate brown hand grips and chocolate brown tyres.
The LIKEaBIKE Mountain is one of Kokua’s most popular wooden bike models and is the perfect companion whether riding in the park or tackling grassy slopes.
The pneumatic tyres of the LIKEaBIKE Mountain make rough and bumpy paths comfortable for the rider.
All frame pieces of this LIKEaBIKE are constructed from strong, attractive Birch plywood. The charming and unique wooden wheels of the LIKEaBIKE are alloy rimmed with smooth running sealed cartridge bearings and 12″ pneumatic tyres.
The LIKEaBIKE Mountain is a standard size model and so the saddle height can be adjusted to 4 different positions between 325mm and 425mm (12.75″ – 16.75″) to suit children aged from approximately 2 to 5 years. Includes hand-grips.

Award winning design.
The attention to detail with LIKEaBIKE is superb. The frame, fork, wheels, handlebar and saddle are beautifully crafted from high-quality birch or beech plywood and treated with a tough varnished coating which fully complies with strict child safety regulations. There are no sharp edges and no places for little fingers to get trapped. The steering is ‘damped’ by soft felt pads to prevent over-steering, which is a common cause of accidents with traditional toddler bikes. The wheels run on quality grease-free sealed cartridge bearings and have non-marking tyres for use indoors and out. Most models have inflatable pneumatic tyres, although the original ‘LIKEaBIKE Racer’ model has solid ones, which are more suitable for smooth surfaces.
LIKEaBIKEs are so well built that the manufacturer provides a two year unconditional warranty; astounding for a product aimed at 2-6 year olds! Your child’s LIKEaBIKE wooden bike is made to last and you can be assured that it will still be fit for handing down to younger brothers and sisters when they are ready.
