“Bike riding becomes a breeze when you teach your child balance and coordination before pedaling. The Strider™ takes pedaling out of the mix so that kids can concentrate solely on learning balance, which takes more practice. Pedaling is a secondary skill that kids can easily learn within a few short minutes.”
My son was a little unsure about this Running Bike since it did not have any pedals but after his first ride I did not hear any more complaints! He loves that he can go in the rocks, grass,, dirt and anything else he can think of. My daughter enjoys the fact that she gets to ride a big kid bike. Most of her friends’ bikes with training wheels are too tall for her and she is quite unsure of herself while on them. I love that my children have control of how daring they are going to be. If they get scared, all they have to o is put their feet down. And if they fall while riding, which is rare, there are no pedals to to squish their legs between the bike and the pavement and the handle bar is designed to not jab them in the stomach. Less trauma and injuries while learning to ride a bike makes everyone happy!
My son enjoys this bike so much, we find him all over the house with it. He even tried eating dinner on it one night.
The company is great to work with and the Running Bike was delivered quickly. The bike was easy to put together and Strider Sports included all the tools necessary to put it together. It took less than 10 minutes max! Since there is such a height difference between my daughter and son, Strider Sports also sent us the along with an extra long Seat Post/Saddle and Strider Seat Clamp Quick Release. It allows us to switch the two seats quickly. It took 5 seconds to switch the two seats which is perfect for excited and impatient little riders!
