Complete Review From the Average Joe

My son's third birthday was coming and I wanted to get him a bike. Looking at the 12 inch bikes with training wheels all I saw was heavy steel that would be too much...Read complete review

My son's third birthday was coming and I wanted to get him a bike. Looking at the 12 inch bikes with training wheels all I saw was heavy steel that would be too much for him. The average bike weighs more than him. Training wheels don't teach balance or how to lean to turn. I live in the country and don't have sidewalks or pavement for him to ride on without going to the park or elsewhere. So I took a look at the different light weight balance bikes and read all the reviews.

Before my purchase, Strider seemed to be the way to go right from the bat. The wheels aren't a hard plastic. It's the lightest in it's class. It's adjustable to a good degree for longer use and better fit. I had decided on the Strider bike, 12 inch, but still couldn't decide on the model. The price differences are considerable and I couldn't tangibly see what the true difference was. So I ordered the sport model, not the low end, not the high end, right in the middle.

The package arrived, I opened and assembled, and can now say the sport model is the way to go. Upgraded from the Classic model it has thick rubber ends on the handle bars for when the kid drops it to the ground. The handle bars have a pad for when the kid smacks into them. The sport model comes with the classic hard plastic seat, but also a second cushioned seat which is way better. The sport model falls behind the pro model in weight as the sport is made of steel and weighs almost 7 pounds while the pro is made of aluminum and loses 1 pound. The other benefit I could see to the aluminum pro model is that you wouldn't have to worry about the kid leaving it out in the rain and rust developing. But we are talking about a 3 year old here, so Dad is still teaching proper clean up and I don't anticipate leaving the bike out.

So assembly was fairly simple. Line stuff up and attach quick connector clamps to hold what isn't already assembled. Maybe 10 minutes of time, but could have been less if my son weren't stealing the parts right out from under me.

Now the first ride wasn't so great, he expected the bike to stay upright. He whined that his new bike falls too much. His interest was lost quick and I didn't push it. The second nice day we had I took him out to our fairly large driveway and he gave it a go. He never fell but he dropped it a few times, each time he was very picky about cleaning any parts that touched the ground. He basically straddled it and walked around for a half hour before losing interest. On the third nice day, he must have gained confidence because he started sitting on the seat and propelling himself like you see in the videos. Not fast, but much faster than a slow walk while straddling. On the fourth nice day we had, spring time, I took him to the park. In the first 15 minutes he really improved and before I knew it I had to keep telling him to slow down and watch where he was going. He left the beaten path and wondered through the grass with ease. The quick progression tells me this was the right choice.

Looking at quality, you can't beat it. It's a very solid bike. Extremely light weight, my 30 pound 3 year old puts it in the trunk of the car with ease. Adjustments are simple and easy. I originally was concerned with the durability of the poly foam tires but I can now say they are as tough as a woodpeckers lips.

I would absolutely recommend this as a starter bike. Sure a hundred bucks is a bit steep for what you get, but if it doesn't break your bank, splurge on the kid and get him a good bike that will hold up to his beating, that's unique, and that will fundamentally teach the proper way to ride vs training wheels.

Stiff handlebars

I took it to bike shop because the Handlebars would not turn after I put it together. They got it loosened up a bit but my daughter still can't turn it.

Best investment gift to date!

By Lakita

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

I bought the Strider sport for my son's 3rd birthday. I had never heard of balance bikes the week before I placed the order and was actually on my way to purchase a 12" bike with training wheels. Someone inadvertantly mentioned balance bikes and I did my research and fell in love with the Strider. I could barely wait to give it too my son! I have taken him riding every day for the last 3 weeks and he loves it! The assembly was done in less than 5 minutes, the no tool adjustments are great, and the light weight is the icing on the cake. His leg will bump against the foot rests if his stance isn't wide enough and recessesld bolts would have been nice...but the flexibility and weight of the Strider make it my recommendation. Now all we need is Strider events in St. Louis!

Great first bike!

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

After watching the Strider race in Pittsburgh PA on 6/6/16, we immediately came home and purchased a Sport model. Our 3 year old daughter loves the look of it (it is pink) and she eagerly hopped on. It is very light and she had no problem moving it. Yesterday we took her to a vacant parking lot for her first real attempt, and she quickly learned how to get around on it. We hope to skip the painful training wheels phase using this Strider Balance Bike.

Won't stop riding it!

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

We gave the Sport to our 3.5 year old son 2 weeks ago and can't get him off of it! He is already balancing as he rolls down our driveway. He calls it his "cool bike" and is so much more confident than he was in his cousin's training-wheel bike. Love it and highly recommend it.

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

We just received our strider bikes for my two boys that are 4 and 2. My oldest after two weeks is cruising with his feet up and turning like a champ! My youngest is really getting the hang of it. I give him two more weeks and he will be doing the same thing. Great purchase great price and speedy delivery!

Excellent Bike!

By Zeee

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

Our four year old had been riding a bike with training wheels but couldn't get a hang of it once we took the training wheels off. After only a week on the Strider bike, he was able to ride a regular bike with a lot of confidence and speed! If he had not tried the Strider bike, it would have possibly taken him months to master the balancing. Our two year old is now using it and loves it. This bike completely takes the frustration out of the learning to ride process.

Love it!

By jesmat

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike - Orange:

Bought this for my 1.5yr old son. He's tall for his age but this bike is perfect for his age! He got right on and was sitting and riding in no time. He doesn't have the balance part down yet so doesn't try to pick up his feet...but he's now using his feet to propel himself on other ride on toys and lifting his feet. I think it's just a matter of time. Love the adjustable seat and handlebars. Very light weight..He can even carry it. Seems to be very well made very sturdy.
