2 kids one srider: on pedals by 4 yrs and by 3 yrs

Hello Strider, We love the balance bike! It’s awesome that the concept driving the first bikes, over 200 years ago, have come back for the wee tots....Read complete review

Hello Strider, We love the balance bike! It’s awesome that the concept driving the first bikes, over 200 years ago, have come back for the wee tots. We have two boys, nearly five and nearly three, and both learned their two-wheeled balance on a strider. It was my vision that each kid would learn balance on the strider, and pedaling mechanics on a tricycle then the two would marry at the right time. Theo (born Jan, 2010) got his Strider for Christmas before he turned two and walked on it for nearly 6 weeks until he had his first glide â€" “weeeeeâ€� he said. He tried pedals (on a 12â€� bicycle) at 3 yrs. 5 months, and while he could do it, he wasn’t comfortable with it just yet. I borrowed the strider concept and removed the crank and pedals from that 12â€� bike, so that he could have a taller balance bike and so his 2 year younger brother (Owen, born Jan, 2012) could take over the strider (about 18 months). Theo transitioned onto a pedal bike at 4 years without ever experiencing the crutch of training wheels! Owen (adept at the strider, fully six months ahead of Theo), took to the strider practically instantly!! Just two months ago, having ridden a strider for over a year, Owen was exposed to a pedal bike. At 22 months old, I put him on a 12â€� pedal bike, walked with him saying, “pedal-pedal-pedal little guy, just like the tricycleâ€� and he took off! He used his handle bar balance checks and rode a pedal bike, without training wheels at under 3 years!! He can also ride Theo’s 16â€� bike, albeit his feet are a good 6-8 inches from touching the ground, but he can RIDE it! I’ve included a video compilation (it’s 8 min but stick with it ;) of Owen’s bike-learning year. Oh, and Owen was born with a critical congenital heart defect requiring open-heart reconstructive surgery at 10 days old. He also has an underlying neurological condition affecting the stability of his eye muscles, so while he now has glasses to correct astigmatism and myopia, he mostly only uses one eye for all his antics. He pretty much goes all-in all the time, smiling! Thank you strider!! While there are other balance bikes on the market, I strongly feel that the design and engineering behind Strider is superior. It has the lowest minimum seat height yet extends high enough for an older toddler; with the narrower handlebar, smaller grips and light-weight frame geometry, it allows very small children to manipulate and maneuver the bike with little effort, more of a reflex than a process. I feel it is the best balance bike on the market. Mark Weissinger Moab, Utah http://youtu.be/NrCr_3nYkeE

Stiff handlebars

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.

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

The Strider has been a big hit with our ~2 year old. Its light weight allows him to easily turn and maneuver. He already pretty good at walking the balance bike, and is getting progressively more comfortable going faster each time he's on it. We can see how his skill set will advance over time. Nice looking, well made product.

Amazing!!

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

I bought the strider bike 2+weeks ago for my 3 yr old son and 5yr old daughter. Both ride bikes with training wheels but I can not get the training wheels off. It took my son 1 day to get his balance and my daughter is still working on it but what a difference in control of riding a bike. I wish I would have purchased the strider earlier but it works, I already see a huge difference.

Best investment gift to date!

By Lakita

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

I bought the Strider sport for my son's 3rd birthday. I had never heard of balance bikes the week before I placed the order and was actually on my way to purchase a 12" bike with training wheels. Someone inadvertantly mentioned balance bikes and I did my research and fell in love with the Strider. I could barely wait to give it too my son! I have taken him riding every day for the last 3 weeks and he loves it! The assembly was done in less than 5 minutes, the no tool adjustments are great, and the light weight is the icing on the cake. His leg will bump against the foot rests if his stance isn't wide enough and recessesld bolts would have been nice...but the flexibility and weight of the Strider make it my recommendation. Now all we need is Strider events in St. Louis!

Great first bike!

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

After watching the Strider race in Pittsburgh PA on 6/6/16, we immediately came home and purchased a Sport model. Our 3 year old daughter loves the look of it (it is pink) and she eagerly hopped on. It is very light and she had no problem moving it. Yesterday we took her to a vacant parking lot for her first real attempt, and she quickly learned how to get around on it. We hope to skip the painful training wheels phase using this Strider Balance Bike.

Won't stop riding it!

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

We gave the Sport to our 3.5 year old son 2 weeks ago and can't get him off of it! He is already balancing as he rolls down our driveway. He calls it his "cool bike" and is so much more confident than he was in his cousin's training-wheel bike. Love it and highly recommend it.

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

We just received our strider bikes for my two boys that are 4 and 2. My oldest after two weeks is cruising with his feet up and turning like a champ! My youngest is really getting the hang of it. I give him two more weeks and he will be doing the same thing. Great purchase great price and speedy delivery!

Excellent Bike!

By Zeee

Comments about Strider Sports 1019787 Strider 12 Classic No-Pedal Balance Bike - Blue:

Our four year old had been riding a bike with training wheels but couldn't get a hang of it once we took the training wheels off. After only a week on the Strider bike, he was able to ride a regular bike with a lot of confidence and speed! If he had not tried the Strider bike, it would have possibly taken him months to master the balancing. Our two year old is now using it and loves it. This bike completely takes the frustration out of the learning to ride process.
