Clearly, it could be used either way around by adjusting the tilt of the saddle on the post. The important thing is that the saddle is over the axle.

I still believe it is backwards. In the position shown in the photo it would surely be a serious knee hazard.

The saddle is in the right direction. Last year they sold the bike in for 29€

https://www.boc24.de/shop/fahrraeder...?itemId=540976

so I gave it a try for my daughter. She is 6 years and has short legs (58cm) and could ride it without any adjustments. Before she was riding a 16".

I thought this way when I pick her up at school I can ride there and she is riding back. But if you change the seat height from the lower end to the highest point you have to adjust the angle as well. If not it's rideable but very uncomfortable.

But there are no problems with the knee.

The problem I see with that thing is that the frame sticks out too far - past the line from the end of the saddle to the edge of the tire - so it's going to bang into the ground every time the uni falls.

Sure would save the beginners seat, something always hits the ground whdn you fall !
