The Bikee balance bike by Trikke provides kids 2 to 5 years old of age an easier way to get comfortable and confident on two wheels. The balance bike proved to be a fun way for his kids to get their confidence biking rolling. Later, he decided that Trikke can design an improved version of this effective concept. This version of balance bike features an innovative design with longer wheelbase and more rake on the front for comfort and more natural balance. Integrated footrest is made to be unobtrusive , and still allow kids to rest thier feet as they glide. This products withstands the rigors of children extremely well. Airless tires makes this a great, low maintenance for your kid's pre-bike running days.

My son is very average (50th percentile) for height and at the minimum height settings, the bike worked well. Our neighbor's 2.5 year old has also ridden on it at the minimum settings and had no problems, even though the handlebars were a little tall. A 2 year old will quickly grow into a 3 year old anyway, and this bike will definitely grow with your child. The age range on the package is 2-5 so keep in mind, if you are buying this bike for a 24 month old, especially one who isn't tall, it may take a few months for them to grow into the bike. The seat adjusts a whopping 5 inches, which is nothing to sneeze at when talking about young children, not to mention that it's 2-3 inches more adjustable than most other bikes. The handlebars adjust also. Easy to adjust with an allen wrench (included). It was also very easy to assemble. Took me about 10 minutes.
It took my son about a week to get the courage to bear all his weight on the seat and start picking up his feet (prior to this he would "walk" the bike and just straddle it), and he got the hang of it quickly. I'm really impressed with his balance and can definitely see how these balance bikes forgo the need for training wheels. His next bike will be a pedal bike with no training wheels, I'm sure.
The bike is also VERY lightweight. This is an important thing for two reasons: 1) my toddler can handle it better; heavy bikes take more effort and energy just to manage and 2) when he gets tired and wants to walk, it's really no big deal for me to carry it the rest of the way.
The foot rest is nice, though my son rarely uses it since he only picks his feet up a few seconds at a time. Maybe when he's older (I can DEFINITELY see a 5 year old being able to ride this bike). The greatest thing I've come to like about the foot rest is that it serves as a sort of hanger. I hook it onto the handlebar of our stroller when we go for walks and it hangs there until he's ready to ride again.
The tires are molded material as opposed to air-filled (similar to many stroller tires) which I thought might be an issue with our rough city sidewalks, but it actually seems to absorb shock amazingly well and the wheels show very little wear after 5 months of frequent use. It's also nice because you never have to worry about keeping them inflated. This was the main selling point that pulled me away from the Strider bikes.
The frame is a nice quality and seems very sturdy. We have had no issues whatsoever, nothing seems to be wearing down excessively; the plastic inners on the wheels are holding up very well; even the paint is as bright as the day we bought it. We got the blue/green model which is super cute.
Will update in a few months after even more useage, but so far I am VERY VERY happy with this purchase, and so is my son!
It just so happens that 3 other couples in our neighborhood have children the same age as our son(currently 4, at time of purchase they were all 3). They were all born within a month of each other, 2 boys and 2 girls. Needless to say they all do things at pretty much the same time. Last summer was time for everyone to start on balance bikes. First i thought " Why buy one of those balance bikes, can't i just buy a small kids bike from the thrift store and pull the crank out?" That way when my son was ready to ride I could just put the crank back in and I would get 2 bikes for the price of one. Well I tried that and it did not go well, the geometry to add in peddles makes the bike difficult to use as a coaster. So me being bull headed I thought well I will just use parts from this bike and make a frame that will work from wood. In hind sight I may have been on to something but the stem needed much more work and design then I was willing to put into it. By now the neighbors all had coaster bikes and their kids were stumbling around the neighborhood. One bought a really small coaster with really small wheels and small frame for $60ish. Another bought a Kazam for $90. And the last bought a top of the line Strider for $200+.
I took to Amazon and after thumbing through reviews decided to take a chance on this one. What a stroke of luck! This is by far the best of the group and my son was ripping around the block weeks/months before his friends. First off this bike is light, much lighter then the others so it is easy for my son to move around. Second the 'foam' wheels do great on any surface and you never have to worry about them catching a thorn. Third and probably most important the wheelbase on the bike is long. Why does that mater so much? Good question, it matters because the longer the wheelbase the more stable the bike is. More stable equals more confidence in the rider which equals much safer which equals a very fast learning curve. First day out son just 'walked' it around the block. Second days he was taking long strides (10 feet) and starting to coast. Third day out he was flying around the neighborhood and riding circles around his peers which all had had their bikes longer. His confidence grew so fast that by end of last summer he was riding a 12 inch peddle bike with no training wheels with absolutely no problems. Over the fall/winter he graduated to a 14 inch that he rides with me when I go for a run. He even rode it in a charity 5k at Thanksgiving.
Some things to think about with this bike though. The seat post does have a weird stop in it that makes the seat to high for young riders. Just remove the seat grab you trusty hammer/mallet and smack the seat post down past the 'stop'. The stop is just a small dimple in the inner tube the post fits in. It should move past it with one hit. If you have to hit it more then once then put a scrap piece of wood on the top of the seat post so you don't bend it up. Second the foam grips will fall apart after a few month. I just went to the local bike shop and bought some cheapies to replace them. Third the bike is so easy to use your child will want to ride it around inside your house!(which we let him do, cause it is a hoot to watch from the couch. haha)
So where are the neighborhood kids now? Our son is regularly riding this bike for fun and his 14 inch for longer trips. We just moved him onto a Yamaha PW50 motorbike as well. We have the Trikee Bikee to thank for the very confident rider our son has turned out to be. The Kazam rider learned a couple of weeks after our son. She was able to move onto a 12 inch peddle bike with no training wheels by the end of summer. That bike is not as good as this one(heavier and shorter wheelbase) but much better then the other two. A good option if you do not buy this one for some reason. The "tiny" bike rider took all summer to learn and is still struggling with it. Has not tried to peddle. The Strider rider never learned and has not approached peddling either. I think probably more because of parents then equipment but it is in important point to remember; an expensive bike will never make up for lazy parenting.
Summary grab a helmet, gloves, a Trikke Bikee Balance Bike let your child's biking adventure begin!
