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

We purchased the bike about a month ago and he hasn't gotten the hang of it yet but loves to ride up and down the sidewalk and in our home with it.I'm looking forward to him riding it independently.

Lil Red Loved it

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

I bought one for my nephew. We got the green classic one and placed it under the Christmas tree. As soon as he spotted it he went straight for it, despite all of the other gifts and distractions. He climbed right on even though he is only a year and a half. Apparently he has been eyeing the little boy across the street who has one, so he knew exactly what to do. He is a little small but already loves it and will grow into it soon.

We love this bike!!!!

By JackJack

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

I bought a Strider bike for my grandson Jack after talking with friends who suggested one because of Jack's obsession with motorcycles. I repainted it in metal flake blue and clear coat to match my motorcycle and added custom graphics with his name JackJack and with Throttle Jockey decals. He fell in love with it immediately and he and I have had such fun and bonding time with it. I bought his the ski accessories for it and we are excitedly awaiting snow. He rides this in our house when the weather is bad. Jack immediately was able to ride the Strider well, picking up quickly on it and now he is doing more advanced riding. I'm building him a dirt track in the spring. Thanks for a great product. We love it.

Family Tradition

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

I set the tone by buying my first grand daughter a Strider for her 2nd birthday a couple of years ago. Then my grand son when he turned 2. I just bought my 3rd and 4th grandchildren theirs, with our 5th, 6th and 7th-(bun in the oven) coming around the bend. My hope is to have them all in a parade somewhere riding their bikes.

Only A Strider Would Do!

By Gramma Barb

from Madison, WI, United States

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

Our youngest son Jack is an avid biker who has gifted his siblings' kids with Strider bikes while they were very young. Now that Jack has a son of his own, we knew the perfect Christmas gift for Ollie would be a Strider, although Ollie is only ten months-old! Jack selected the Strider, I (Gramma Barb) ordered it, and the bike arrived for Ollie the next day. Great service, great bike, so fun!

Just awesome for teaching my two year old grandson to balance. His brother had one on these and was riding a two wheel bike with no training wheels at three years old.

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

My son received his Strider bike on a Sunday and by Tuesday he was already lifting his feet off the ground and coasting for several feet. Wow! The bike was super easy to assemble (took less than 5 minutes), is lightweight and my son loves the orange color.

Perfect intro to a love of bikes

By M Rad

from Driggs, ID, United States

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

Our son started riding his strider around age 2, and after a bit of scooting around slowly, he started to figure out the 'stride'. That's when we were really sold. He is able to cruise on this little thing so fast I need a bike myself to keep up. His balance skills are incredible. Its light weight enough for a toddler to maneuver easily, the tires are solid so we never have to worry about flats. Its one of his favorite activities, especially since we are avid bikers, so he feels like he can join in the family fun. I can also stick it in the basket of my chariot bike trailer for when he gets tired.
