Why Strider Balance Bikes?
Why Balance Bikes?
The balance bike is a simple design to teach young children how to steer and balance on two wheels without training wheels. Since the bike has no pedals or other complicated forms of propulsion, most children come to find that riding a balance bike is as easy as walking. Children do not have to fear when they are on a balance bike because they can place their feet solidly on the ground. As the child progresses at his or her pace, they can change to a traditional bicycle whenever they are ready.
Through ten years of development, manufacturing improvements, riding, observation, testing and even racing, Strider Bikes has created a bike that allows for an easy and more successful transition to a pedal bike. Strider specializes specifically in Balance Bikes and in the process the company has developed enhanced features, including the lowest seat in the industry. With Strider’s Four Learn-to-Ride steps, children can jump on a bike and get moving as soon as the bike is set up. As lovers of riding bikes, Strider loves inspiring children to ride. Strider’s mission is to build lightweight, efficient, all-terrain bikes that develop two-wheeled balance, coordination, and confidence. With 1 million sold worldwide, Strider hopes to continue to reach families around the world.

Encourage your child to ride with a Strider Bike. When learning to ride, a child must be allowed to experience the feel of leaning and how steering affects the balance of the bike. When a child learns to ride without leaning, such as on a tricycle or bike with training wheels, they aren't really learning to ride at all. With the help of a balance bike, the child can learn how to balance and ride a bike in the most simplest way.

We have sent an email to Strider Customer Service - But so far no response - Let me see if they stand behind their products. But for now, avoid this cheaply made overpriced bike at all costs - If brand new bikes are rusted this soon - I wonder what happens when the child actually uses it on dirt road, grass and wet conditions.
There is simply no way this bike can last based on the quality of these materials. So don't believe the hype and waste your money thinking this will last 4-5 years.
About 4 months ago he started riding it on trails both on and off road. He can now fly around the house, down the driveway, up and down hills, on pretty much any terrain, and he can’t get enough. We honestly have to hide his bike at times because we just can’t take it everywhere. Once he figured out the balancing he started gliding small distances and now he can balance with both feet up for easily 25 feet or more with the right speed. Great construction, awesome design, and several accessories available, one of which we will be adding very soon (the ski attachments). I have recorded several GoPro videos of him out riding and enjoying this bike, so much fun!!! Definitely worth the price!
I do have one suggestion for Strider, in case they read this. The adjustable seat and handle bars are very easy to use, we love this; though some type of height/level marking along the rod would make it even better! As we have adjusted over time for our growing and learning kiddo, it can be difficult to go back to a setting you previously had, or when others happen to adjust the seat, being able to easily adjust back to the appropriate height would be much easier with some type of marking system. I have used electrical tape and this works in a pinch. Thanks!
By the way, be prepared to engage in conversation with others about this bike when you take your kiddo out riding, this seriously happens constantly! You’ll be sure to see you kid quickly flying by older kiddos with training wheels on a traditional bike! Eventually we will transition to pedals, but this definitely seems to be the right approach. Enjoy!!! Thank you Strider!!! Please bring some events to Austin Texas and the surrounding areas!!!
I like how at barely two he can manage his bike independently. Adds to his level of confidence!
Easy assembly though! Glad we chose the Sport. Made well!
This came disassembled, and assembly was fairly easy. It took a bit of time to get everything just right, but since the initial assembly we haven't had to re-tighten or change anything (other than the seat height as he grew).
These are very light. I can easily lift it over my head to hang in the garage with just one hand (I'm a mom for reference).
The tires are still in great shape after over a year. Granted, he's not doing Iron Man distances on this thing, but we ride it quite often around our neighborhood and occasionally on trails.
Both of my kiddos started on balance bikes. This is easily the best way to teach a kid how to balance on a normal bike. My daughter went straight from a balance bike to a normal one. No training wheels!
This is a bit expensive now. When we bought it it did cost less. After doing some research, this seemed to be the best option for our little guy. I've never used a different bike, but I can attest that this one is awesome!
