In our “Buy It For Life” posts we feature products that are built to last a lifetime. We also give preference to products that are very durable, are warrantied for life, and are made in the U.S.
Originally designed by Tony Anthony in 1949, the Converto Bike is a solid aluminum tricycle that converts into a bicycle in minutes. When your child is ready for a two wheeler, simply remove rear axle and place one of the wheels into the rear fork. The bike has very sturdy steel and cast-aluminum alloy frame that prevents rust.
The inventor of this bike, Tony Anthony, worked as a engineer for Northrop, and used his knowledge of aluminum to fabricate the cast aluminum tricycles. The Converto Bike is now made by Angeles company in Missouri.
It comes with a five year guarantee against defect parts, and a lifetime guarantee on the fork and frame.
