Bike USA Stabilizer Wheel Kit

Mount to the Frame not to the Axle.

Our Patented Heavy Duty Adult training wheels are the strongest and most durable bike training wheel kit on the market. They are made of tubular steel much like the frame of the bike. They do not attach to the axle which is a weak mounting point. They mount to the rear chain and seat stays on either side of the bicycle frame using special plastic coated u-bolts. This kit is great for any adult who lacks proper balance on a bicycle.

Each side is under 13 inches in Length.

When mounted properly each stabilizer wheel should be about 1/2 - 1 inch off of the ground and teeter much like a traditional bicycle training wheel kit would. Installation is easy and the bicycle stabilizer wheel kit can be removed at any time. Simple hand tools required for installation of these bike training wheels. Photo step-by-step installation instructions are included with each bicycle stabilizer training wheel kit.

Will fit through a standard doorway!

The total width of the stabilizer wheels is under 30 inches once mounted properly, which means they will fit through a standard doorway. Some people keep these training wheels on permanently and store the bicycle indoors. This width is also important for those that bicycle carriers and automobile bike racks. You will also still fit on a standard sidewalk, through hallways, and you no longer need to use your bike kickstand!

Actual bike tires with tubes are included!

Each Training wheel set comes with two 16 inch tubes with inflatable tires and axles just like on a traditional bike. This is one of the reasons why our kit is able to support so much weight. This kit is a great alternative to buying an adult tricycle. Our kit will mount to any traditional "diamond" shaped bicycle which includes cruisers, mountain bikes, and commuter bikes as long as the original bike has a 24 - 27 inch tyre. Please note this kit will not work with a folding bike, and electric bicycle, or a recumbent bicycle.

These wheels are fantastic--very sturdy and well made!

It is also un-safe while turning if the road is not nearly flat (even a slight bank may cause trouble for the rider) or if turning too quickly or sharply.

I bought this product based on the picture as the wheels touch the ground thereby allowing for a wider base of support. As per the professional who put the wheels on for me, they can NOT touch the ground because then the large wheel can NOT get traction. True, I did not understand the physic behind it, but I did call the company prior to the purchase. The "stability" the product affords is after the fact. First you have to lean over so that the side wheel can catch you. This product may work for individual with mild peripheral vestibular disorders, but it will NOT work for those with central and or combined vestibular disorders. So... I spent a lot of money for a product that I can not use and I spent additional money to have it put on my bike. Here's the final note... the gentleman who owns the bike shop will NOT sell these to his customers, He recommends that his customers purchase a three wheeler.

These wheels are awesome!! Because of this kit, Bike USA Stabilizer Wheel Kit, I can now ride a bike for the first time in 25 years!! I have balance issues and cannot ride a bike with only 2 wheels. These wheels, Bike USA Stabilizer Wheel Kit, solved my problem! They were not too difficult for my friend to put on for me.

It took some getting used to. The bike with these wheels has a bit of a different feel than just a 2 wheeler. But now I am totally used to it, and in just a few rides, it felt great!! I ride nearly every day now. People turn and look at my bike.

One of my friends, who is in a wheelchair wants to try my bike. She thinks my bike looks trendy. My mother thinks it looks cool. One woman asked me where I got the wheels because her son is disabled. I told her Bike USA makes the wheels and I bought them on Amazon.

As a kid and teenager, I rode my bike a lot until my balance got too bad. Now I am back on a bike, getting my exercise in a way I love! Thanks Amazon and Bike USA!!

I bought an expensive bike several years ago, but never road it because of my balance. Having MS makes riding a bike hard, if not impossible. When I saw I could get these wheels, I was so happy that I could ride a bike again. I loved riding my bike when I was younger and couldn't wait to get them. I may be 41 with training wheels, but at least I'm out riding.

I will say, when it came I had assembled by a friend and one of the tires wouldn't inflate. I contacted the company and within a week, they sent me a new tire. Now, thats great customer service to me.

If you are thinking of using this product to teach someone/yourself to ride a bike, don't waste your money! There are more effective ways to do that (described at the end of this review). While the stabilizer wheels do help keep the bike upright, it does nothing to help the rider learn balance. Riding a bike with this kit installed feels very awkward, especially when turning. Since the wheels force the bike to remain (relatively) upright in a turn, the resulting effect is that the rider (and the bike) "leans" to the outside of the turn (opposite the direction of the turn). This is a very un-settling feeling (normally, the rider and bike would "lean" toward the direction (inside) of the turn). It is also un-safe while turning if the road is not nearly flat (even a slight bank may cause trouble for the rider) or if turning too quickly or sharply. The additional width added by the kit to the bike will make navigating obstacles more difficult if not impossible. Although the kit is sturdy, it is also quite heavy, as it is made of steel. The included hardware was not sufficient to properly install the kit on my bike (2008 Specialized HXRC, 26" wheels) to achieve the proper alignment. I purchased additional spacers (washers) and longer "U" (shaped) bolts in order to align the wheels properly.

The bottom line: after nearly a year of occasional use, the rider did not learn how to ride a "regular" bike. The rider and bike will be very noticeable once the kit in installed (this is not necessarily a good thing). If you want to teach/learn how to ride, do not buy this kit thinking it will help.

Try this: Instead, use a "regular" bike and lower the seat until the rider's feet can touch the ground while seated; and remove the pedals.

I had high expectations for this product - I have Multiple Sclerosis, so balance issues are a problem for me. I missed being able to ride my bike, and hoped that this product would enable me to start riding again. Unfortunately, I was never able to adjust to the new "feel" these gave to riding a bike; mostly, they made my bike feel unnavigable. The seller of this product, Wishful thngs 4 U, did not include the installation instructions; I had to get these from the manufacturer, which caused a delay in getting the stabilizer wheels installed on my bike. When I was finally able to try out the stabilizer wheels and determine that they would not work for me, it had been over 30-days since I initially purchased them, and Wishful Things 4 U would not accept a return. A dissapointing product (for me anyway); and a poor experience with Wishful Things 4 U - I will not do business with this company again.
