My son who is 3 years old received the Strider Sport for Christmas this past year. Unable to ride it outside right away he took to riding it up and down the hallway. Once spring hit he hit the street and quickly learned how to take corners, lean into the turn and above all else mastered Balance! After seeing all the neighbor kids with their peddle bikes he wanted one as well. We put him on a peddle bike which is about the same size as his Strider and he took off with no problems! He is 3 years old...NO TRAINING WHEELS EVER!!!! He has been riding his peddle bike for less than 1 week and looks like he has been riding for Months! Other benefits of this product is that it is very light weight making it easy for my son to use and easy to pick up if he fell down. Assembly was a breeze. The seat and handles are both easily adjustable which was great for my son since he is pretty tall for his age. I will most definitely be recommending this bike to friends and family who are looking to purchase a starter bike. Balance is a hard thing to learn for many kids and with the Strider Bike he learned at his own pace! This is an Amazing Product!! Thank You!!

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

from Boise, ID, United States

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

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!

My son doesn't want to stop riding!

By Peanut's mom

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

After reading reviews and doing some price comparison, we finally settled on the Strider 12" Sport for our 20 month old son. Compared to the other bikes we looked at, the Strider seat could be adjusted lower making it a good fit for our little one. He has seen older kids playing on bikes and scooters and always wanted to try them out himself. So you can imagine his excitement when I pulled the Strider out of the box! It was a breeze to set up... Just attach the front wheel and handle bar.... It took 10 minutes.... And that was mostly because my son insisted on "helping"!
Once we put the bike together he hopped on. It took about 15 minutes for him to get the hang of it and about 1.5 hours for me to convince him to get off it and eat lunch! Since then we have taken him rising every day and he continues to gain confidence and skill! Everyone who sees him riding is impressed and want to know where we got the bike.

As mentioned in some of the reviews I have read, the seat is hard plastic, but that doesn't seem to bother my son. We'll have to see about this as he gets older. This bike also has foam wheels which are fine at this age. We plan to purchase the air filled tires as he gets older. Despite these two things, I am happy with our purchase of the Strider. It was considerably more affordable than the other models we looked at, the quality is good and it was really the only bike that could size down to my son's height, yet provide the option to grow with him for quite awhile. This is definitely one of best investments we've made!

This is good to help teach our 2.5 year old balance. We can't get him to peddel so this is helping him balance and get him prepared for a bike. When we go to the beat our friends have kids the same age and they are already riding bikes. Now he will be able to ride with them.

Amazing

By AJB1

from Annapolis, MD

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

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 - Red:

      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 - Red:

      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!!
