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.

The bike works for it's intended use but materials are pretty cheap for the price you pay. For example bikes have a "headset", it's the bearings the on top and bottom of the frame where the fork goes through it. With a properly installed and adjusted headset there's no play between the frame and fork and the rotate rotates smooth and consistent. This does not have any sort of bearing for smooth operation or a way to really make it snug. It uses plastic washers as the headset bearings which was disappointing. It's not a bad bike but after seeing all the good reviews and taking the price into account I expected more. It's not a real good value

Strider Sport

By Barb

from Roscommon, MI, United States

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

I bought this bike on March 10 for my Grandsons 4th birthday which was March 18th. The bike arrived on March 18th, I really didn't think that it would make it. If I had not called the company to inquire why the shipping information had not changed the bike would not have arrived on time. I used the online chat with a very nice gentleman named Tyler, he did his research and the bike movement started. His professionalism was appreciated. He also went on to ask my Grandsons shirt size so that he could send him a jersey. I would not hesitate to purchase from this company again. My Grandson loves the bike and the jersey, he even called today and asked for another jersey. Thanks Strider people!!

Perfect for our toddler

By ABarthel

from Northern Virginia

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

We bought a Strider for our daughter's second birthday. We appreciated that it was the perfect size for her & that it will grow with her for several years. We also feel like we made the right choice picking Strider over a trike or bike with training wheels because she can manipulate it by herself; if we had chosen a trike or bike with training wheels she would have had to learn to peddle, which can be difficult for a tot. Learning to balance first, peddle later just made sense to us & she LOVES her "oranges" bike.

Great Company with a great product!

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

This is the second Strider bike I have purchased. We had to purchase a new bike after the first was run over by a car. The new bike was shipped quick and came easy to assemble. My almost three year old loves it and has learned quickly how to ride. He easily balances and turns, riding the bike everyday. I plan to purchase a third for my daughter in a couple of months when she turns 2.

My son starting riding this bike like a demon when he was 2.5. We switched him a comparable sized pedal bike when he was 3 years and 4 months and he rode it immediately with no pedals. Such a cool product.
