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 – "weeeee" he said. He tried pedals (on a 12" 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 12" 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 12" pedal bike, walked with him saying, "pedal-pedal-pedal little guy, just like the tricycle" 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 16" 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.

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

Could Not Be Happier

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

We got our son a Strider bike for his 2nd birthday. He absolutely loves it and I have been amazed at how quickly he has taken to it. Riding his Strider bike is one of his favorite things to do.

Great Bike, great service, great people

By Bernnieg

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

Bought the bike for my grandson. He loves it. As he had grown, I keep raising the seat. Being the klutz that I am, I stripped the seat adjustment bolt. Called them on the phone. Ann was great. Sent a replacement and also gave me a good deal on the larger seat post. I've got another grandchild on the way. I'll be buying another bike.

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

We bought this bike for our 3 yr old in august. By winter he could ride a big bike with training wheels. My other son who turned two climbed on and road it without issues. They love this bike! The changeable seat and handle bar make it great for growing with your child or sharing.

Tested and Approved - As Advertised!

By Jeffrey

from Deerfield Beach, FL, United States

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

I bought this bike for my son as I saw children similar to his age (3.5) riding them at a trade show. It took him a little while to get comfortable with the idea of balancing and as soon as he got the hang of it, we haven't been able to get him off of the bike. Watching what this has done for his balance is amazing. I see kids much older than him riding around with training wheels and are far away from riding without them. I have spread the word and continue to tell friends and family about it as well as show them how much fun he has while he is learning

Great Bike

By jmc7360

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

I love the bike but I am concerned Strider requires the minors name and date of birth to be able to register the bike. This prohibits me from registering the bike. Strider's first priority should be to protect the children not collect children's information

14 months old!

By Fuentes

from Kentucky

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

We bought the bike for Christmas less than 1 month ago my son is 14 months old and is just starting to get the hang of it, as soon as my son wakes up it is the first thing he goes to play with. I really thought it would be a few months before he could hold it up and go by himself but it took less than a month, can't wait for the next warm day to head outdoors with it! Love it!

Only regret is not getting one even sooner

By Boymom

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

I bought this for my son for Christmas, just a few weeks shy of his 2nd birthday. He loves it and rides it around the house until it gets warm enough to take it outside. He's already balancing at times when he gets enough glide to pull his feet up. This bike makes the balancing part such a natural transition. Wish I would've gotten it even earlier!
