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

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

My little girl just skipped training wheels entirely. When her big brother was 4, he only need training wheels for a week after his time with a Strider balance bike. Now it's the youngest's turn to learn to stride!

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

My son has been riding his Strider bike since he was 18 months old. He's 3 now. He mastered riding it within weeks! We had our daughter in January last year and just got her her first Strider bike! It's amazing how fast they learn to balance and master riding.

Best bikes

By Amanda1390

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

My oldest started with a strider at about 3 and my middle child at 2. My oldest is now 6 and STILL loves his bike and my now 3 year old zooms on her bike and is very proud of being able to keep up with her big brother. These bikes are solid. We use them almost every day and I recommend them to everyone!

Proud Mama!

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

My son got this for his 2nd birthday from his aunt. This is by far his favorite and most used "toy". He cant get enough of it! He has had it a little less then a year and looking back it is amazing how fast he picked up on how to control himself and the bike! He is a pro! He can lift his feet up and let it roll and still control the handlebars. I cannot wait to see where this love for riding bikes takes him! I would highly suggest this bike to anyone!

Gets Kids Ready and Balanced for a 2-Wheeler Young

By pediatricplay

from Vermont, United States

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

As a Mom of 3 and a pediatric occupational therapist, I can truly say that this bike is AMAZING! All 3 of my own kids learned to ride bikes at age 3 due to all of their time on their Strider. During the toddler years, which are the essential times to build balance and work on a child's vestibular system, this bike promotes independence while neurologically challenging kids in a fun and meaningful way. Thank you Strider!!

It's Genius!!!

By Sgardner77

from Aurora, CO, United States

Comments about Strider - 12 Classic No Pedal Balance Bike:

The scary part about riding a bike is balancing. This bike enables them to get the balancing side of things down before they even try it on a pedal bike. I have three boys the older two rode a pedal bike by age 4(literally on their own) and my youngest at age 3 is super close to being ready for a pedal bike. So glad we got this bike for our kids !!!

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.
