Help duh

Dec 4, 2008
so the wife decided that my 9 year old son needed a new bicycle……of course she went straight to the supermarket rather than a bike shop…..for ichiman he now has a fine mamachari……only problem is, it's too bloody big. can only just get full leg extension when in the saddle…..which is an armchair variety. so I reasoned that if the saddle were say 1.5" deep rather than 3" (seat post at lowest point now), it would be better for him

make sense?

or I imagined some kind of pedal spacer, that slips over each pedal and increases its thickness

taking the bike back doesn't appear to be an option
