When given the opportunity to test this one out, however, I was eager to see for myself why people were talking so much about balance bikes-- and within minutes, I could see the appeal.
First, this is simple to assemble and looks cool. My 3 1/2-year-old couldn't wait to try it out as soon as it was together, so she rode it around the living room and kitchen. She didn't want to get off her bike for the rest of the night-- impressive, considering she owns two tricycles and one bike with training wheels and hasn't really taken to any of them. This one, she thought was fun. While she watched TV, she sat on her bike and picked up her legs and tried to balance as she leaned side to side.
Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to try it out for myself. Now, I am positive the manufacturer didn't intend for a 34-year-old woman to sit on this thing, but I did it anyway (rationalizing that I'm petite), and... I "got it." What looked to me like just plain walking on the videos might have been (maybe they were inexperienced riders), or it might have been more of what I wound up doing, which was sort of gliding. It was fun! Then, to really give the manufacturer a heart attack, my daughter decided she wanted to ride with me. I have no idea how we managed this, but we did, at least for 30 seconds.Read more ›

The YBIKE is well built and was very easy to put together according to the instructions using included wrenches. My wife thought that the color scheme - solid color for the frame and black handlebars, front fork and wheels - was classy, but I thought a red reflector in the back and a white in the front would have added some color and helped with the safety. My son had no problem riding YBIKE from the first time he sat on it. I took this video during his first time using YBIKE about 10 minutes after he got on it. You can see that he already is trying to scoot a little.
Like some other reviewers, I did not like that the seat height is fixed. The manufacturer included a leaflet with an explanation (though the leaflet referenced a different model - YBIKE Extreme) explaining why they decided to make the seat not adjustable, but to me it sounded like an excuse. I would like an adjustable seat, because I think the life of this toy is severely shortened by the lack of it.Read more ›
REASONS NOT TO BUY:
-- It is so low to the ground that even the smallest child appropriate to ride it is too short for it.
-- The weird "Easy Rider" position it puts kids in makes it hard to get any leverage to use their legs and push themselves along.
-- The rear wheels are far too wide, which creates multiple problems: 1)It doesn't help develop balance. 2) It hardly rolls, even down a moderate slope. It will roll down a slope that is steep, but the wide wheels makes it impossible to lean without completely losing control and balance. 3) The lack of tipping back and forth at safe speeds or sitting still takes away the fun. 4) If a child tries to use his legs to push it along, he will inevitably bang his heels into the protruding rear wheel covers. INEVITABLY. And if it's rolling down a slope, he'll get his feet jammed between the rear wheel covers and the ground, which leads to ouchies and tears.
Our child rode this twice. Two minutes the first time, 1 minute the second time. Then he got back on his tricycle.
Think it's just my kid? Think again. We live on a cul-de-sac with 9 kids under the age of 4. I've had this bike for 2 years. Every kid on the cul-de-sac has seen it and said "Wow, cool!" because it looks like a very cool motorcycle. Not one single kid (or their visiting friends or cousins who also tried it) rode it for more than 1 minute.
This bike looks good. That's why I gave it two stars. Don't buy it.
