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.

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.

    We have purchased Strider balance bikes for 2 of our boys when they were about 18 months old. They were able to ride a pedal bike by 3 years old, but still prefer their Strider bikes for mountain trails and playing at the skate/bike parks.

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

    I cannot begin to say enough about our Strider bike. Our son received a regular training wheel bike for his 2nd birthday from grandma. Though we worked and worked he could not get it down. Then my husband saw a story on Strider. I admit I was a skeptic as I had never heard of a balance bike and doubted it greatly however he talked me into getting one. We had to purchase a 16" because our son was a little older at that point and is naturally tall. We received our Strider late one summer and used it into the fall and part of the following summer until his birthday in August when my father bought him a bike for his birthday. You cannot believe my amazement when he hopped on the new bike and took off! He was a little wobbly at first but never fell or required assistance. He just jumped on and was riding!!!! I will never again purchase a bike with training wheels. Strider has me for life!!!!

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

    My son started using his strider bike when he was 16 months old and he has loved it. He is five-and-a-half now and just yesterday we purchased his first pedal bike. This is not an exaggeration, he was riding it, by himself, in 5 minutes and in about an hour he was cruising around. No balance issues at all, no confidence issues. It did take some time to figure out the whole breaking thing though. All in all, the proof is in the results. My son put hundreds of hours into his strider bike and his little sister, age 3+, has been riding hers for well over a year and a half now. These little two wheeled machines have allowed us to get outside with our kids in ways we could have only hoped for, including some winter rides. He is very excited to pass his strider along to the son of a friend of ours who just turned 2. The bike has some dings from some very goo falls and wipeouts, but it is tough as nails and we can't wait to see our friend using it. I love to ride my bike, so I am so thankful that my son's strider bike has helped him to so easily transition to an activity we will be abel to do together for years. Thank you so much, what a great product.

    Bought our first Strider bike 4 years ago when our oldest grandson turned 2. That bike was used by two grandsons and is still in great shape. Just bought two more Strider bikes for our twin granddaughters who turn two in a couple weeks. Can't wait for them to try them out. They like sitting in their older brothers Strider already.

    We purchased this bike for a grandson's second birthday and did this on-line. I didn't think there was any way this could get here on time but the day before the party it was on the porch. We put it together in 5 minutes and Mason walked up and just tossed a leg over like he had been doing it for months!

    We have just purchased the bike and will give it to our granddaughter next week for Easter. She is 2 yrs. old and loved it at the store. So we're looking forward to watching her learn walking, gliding and balance in the weeks to come.

    We bought this bike for our 2 yr old grandson and he Loves it! He rides it everywhere, inside and outside. He has already learning to balance And tries to do tricks its so cute. Wish the seat had some padding. When he outgrows this one which will be a few years from now we will buy another. I also like the accessories you can buy for it too.
