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 is the only way to go! Constant amazement!

By Mizylisa2u

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

My son got his mtn strider at 14 months old and literally loved it from day 1! He progressed into riding at the bmx track and skate parks and even did a strider bike race which he loved!! He loves doing "tricks" standing up and riding, ramps, up/down steps etc! We gave him his first pedal bike gave him a week to learn to pedal (he never had a tricycle or anything) and then told him training wheels were broke! First time his dad let go he pedaled away as though he's been doing it for 10 years! He's 3 y/o and probably could've done it sooner but he refused to ride the "other" bike! If only strider could add pedals as they progress! Lol compared to other balance bikes I've seen friends use I'd still recommend strider! Height/light weight allow them to start young and grow with bike. I even take it on hikes and he'd rode a mile then I could hand it on my BOB stroller handle and he could rest! It's sooo much light than a pedal bike! Best toy or entertainment I've ever bought my son!

Amazing

By AJB1

from Annapolis, MD

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

I just had to add my son's name to the success list. I was a big believer in balance bikes the moment I heard about them, but my husband, mother and mother-in-law, not so much. She was a bit reluctant, but my mom did buy one for the little guy’s birthday (she still thought he’d have to go to training wheels). He received it at age 2 and let it sit- -he looked at it every day, but did not pick it up. About six months in, he started using it in the house (wheels were fine on flooring). At age 3, he used it outside. He turned 4 in December and has used it outside on a handful of days this year. Yesterday, I decided it was time to try pedals. I borrowed a neighbor's bike and let him use it as a Strider as we walked around the corner to cul-de-sac in our neighborhood. I had him put his feet on the pedals and I must have walked only three or four steps- -he was off. Out of the gate he pedaled. It. Was. Amazing. Needless to say, my husband, mother and mother-in-law are now believers.

Durable, lightweight, and fun!

By K8eK8

from Maine, United States

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

I bought the Strider balance bike 2 weeks ago for my young 2 year old. Although she isn't coasting yet, she still loves to go out to the trails with me and proudly tell everyone she is "riding a pink bike." It's lightweight, durable, and adjustable; I look forward to watching how she grows with the bike. Best of all, it gets us both outdoors together. The only downside is that the classic model doesn't come with a pad for the handlebar, and I felt for the price of the bike it could have been included, especially since the bike is for such young riders.

We have had great luck ...

By Justin

from Bismarck ND

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

We have had great luck with our Strider Pro, and my son loves it. It is very light and he can pick it up with one hand. It has a #1 plate which he thinks is the coolest thing ever. We never knew about strider bikes until our oldest son(6 yrs) started racing dirt bikes, and we got the inside tip from some other moto families on how to get your kids racing as soon as possible, the longer they take, the greater the head start some of the other kids will have. So he got a late start with it, he started riding it this spring 2016 when he was 3yrs and 2 months, we really wish we would have known about Strider and bought one for him last year. However, after two months it went from his favorite thing to do in the world, to something that was for little kids. This is on account of the fact that last week he got on his older brothers first bike, a bike that took us weeks to teach his older brother how to ride without training wheels and a couple of pushes later was doing nicily controlled circles in the driveway. No joke!! Within a hour of learning how to ride he went on a bike ride of over a mile. He did great!! The next morning he got on his brothers big bike and started riding that. Thank you Strider!!

We've had this for almost 3 years and my son loves it! He is almost 5 now and still rides it all the time. He never needed training wheels and started riding a bike at 3. He is now on to racing dirt bikes. The strider bike makes a huge difference-it is so worth it!!!
