A bike that grows with you

orbea expandable bikesThe problem with kids is that they outgrow everything. Clothes. Toys. And bicycles. In response to that latter problem, Spain's Orbea has designed a line of bikes that can grow along with their riders.

The Grow range features expandable seat, crossbar, and stem, which can be lengthened as needed to accommodate growing children.

The aluminum bike frames therefore have a longer lifespan, reducing their environmental impact.
