Video: 6-Year-Old Amelie Shreds the Coast Gravity Park with Remy Metailler in Tow

May 21, 2022
by Rémy Métailler  

Amelie is 6, she loves biking more than anything else, and this was her first time at the Coast Gravity Park.

Last summer she would ride the Whistler Bike Park from 10AM to 8PM with only a little break after the DFX camp. Inspiring!

 Remy only kept up due to the larger wheels, he was on his limit for sure.

 Wow, she kept her focus and composure even with Remy and a pack of big riders hot on her wheel! She must have a bmx background.

 You might be surprised what age some places will let them ride, Silvers Star in BC let my son ride at 4 but some of the parks it was 6.

 This is why I hate kids bikes with pedal brakes… y’know, the ones where you pedal backwards to brake. When it came time to find my kid his first pedal bike (graduating from a run bike), most major brands’ bikes had those. Each bike shop employee kept telling me that kids hands weren’t strong enough to activate hand brakes, which was bs.

Eventually I ordered a Spawn, which had v-brakes. He had absolutely no issues with his hands, and by not having pedal brakes, he was able to level his pedals without inadvertently slamming on the brakes whenever he went over rough stuff or rollers (he was ripping around bmx race tracks even back when he was on the run bike).

Anyone telling you that kids can’t use hand brakes is probably thinking of the ones they grew up on, which had crappy cantilevers or u-brakes, which were so weak that you hand to use four fingers to get any leverage for stopping.

 @MB3: I ran 3 kids through the same set of spawn bikes and then 2 sizes of kona Shred. The issue was always (1) brake lever size/reach and then the strength required for rear mechanical disc brakes. If you start with a smaller lever, dial in the reach and keep it clean & lubed I agree that you should get them on hand brakes asap.

 @MB3: totally agree! Got my girl a early rider 16" and she definatley prefers it over the "standard" kids bike. Brakes are no problem at all, they get used to new stuff so much faster than grown ups!
