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

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

I have purchased a Strider Sport for each of my 3 grandsons. They love the bikes. It is the perfect size for each of them and teaches them balance, coordination and speed. So impressed with the quality, the colors and how the bike size adjusts to each child's size.

The bike is perfect for my 22 month-old grandson. He had it figured out in just a few minutes. Assembly was easy and the bike is well-made and light enough for him to lift and carry it around. Shipping was fast and free, too!

Fabulous Birthday Present!

By Grandma J

from Texas

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

I bought this for our Grandson's 3rd Birthday! The look on his face, when he received it was Priceless! He has ridden it EVERYDAY since he got it last Sunday. His Mom says that he rides it almost no-stop. She has to make him get off of it and come inside periodically. Especially since it has been 99-101 in their area during this time. It works beautifully on both the sidewalk and on the grass of the backyard. The construction is so sturdy and well balanced. He has no trouble riding it or maneuvering it. He automatically got on the bike and rode away without any instruction from any adults. I had shown him the videos online before he got the bike and just from that, he knew what to do with it. A Very Happy Grandma and Grandpa.

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

I am away on travel, so I had it shipped to where my 2 year old son is staying. They sent me a video of him riding it. He loves it so much that he cried when it was time to go in for the evening. He even woke up in the middle of the night (which he rarely does) and asked to go out and ride it.

Great bike for a toddler

By J Smith

from Bronx, NY, United States

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

I brought this for my son's 2nd birthday. He always wants to try to ride various bike's or tricycles when we go to our playground but he's still too small. We heard about this from another parent & after checking them out on the website we knew right away we had to get one. We've only had it for a day but he loves it. It gives him a sense of freedom & independence & he feels like a "big boy" . I only gave it 4 stars because we haven't had it long.

What a great concept! Thank you a million times!

By Ryan

from Wisconsin

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

What a great practice bike this was for our 5-year old daughter! She is a tall 5 year old so when we bought this bike for her, it seemed too small, but in reality it was exactly what she needed. A bike that wasn't too large and one she could easily maneuver on. She practiced on it for roughly one month, and then one Saturday she wanted to try her other bike without training wheels and off she went. I didn't even have to teach her the concepts. Thanks to the Strider bike, she knew how to balance. It was unreal to see and I couldn't believe my eyes! Thank you Strider bike. We owe you big time!

I bought this bike for my daughter for her 3rd birthday. I've seen it with other kids and thought what a great idea. It was easy to put together and my daughter absolutely loves it! She's slowing trying to get used to it, but we hope to have a speed demon soon!
