          I bought this for my nearly 3 yr old grandson, even though I wasn't sure that a bike without pedals would be a good idea. His dad thought it'd be a great idea and would teach him to balance. He was right. My grandson loved it and learned to balance the 2nd day he had it. It was a great choice.

                This year two of my grandsons turned 2 years old and I bought them each a bike for their birthdays. They love them and do very well on them. The older of the two is so fast on his bike. And already has learned to lift his feet and balance my only regret is that I didn't see the Harley version when I purchased the first one

                      Got the strider for my daughter when she was 18 months . She is now 3 yrs and 4 months old. She has been riding her strider like crazy but had started asking for a bike with pedals. So I got her a 12" bike and took the training wheels off. It took couple days to really get the hang of it but she is riding with NO training wheels!! We are so glad we got her the Strider bike!

                            both my 1.5yr old and 4yr old learned balance on the strider. the bike is well built, easy to adjust for their different heights/reach and a great platform to learn on for when they are ready to start a pedal bike. i recently discovered pump tracks with them and they are having the time of their life. i wish i had these when i was kid. skip the training wheel headaches, and start them on a strider!

                                  We bought the sport bike for our grandson's third birthday! It didn't take him any time at all to pick up the mechanics of this bike and he loves it. Great product and easily adjustable. We look forward to watching him grow with his strider sport! It is lightweight and easily transports anywhere. Thanks STRIDER

                                        We just got the Strider last weekend for our 2 year old. From the moment we got home he hoped right on the bike and went. He goes through puddles, on hills, and even took it on the merry go round with him. Our son loves the bike and really wanted to do the race in St. Cloud but it didn't work out. I think there needs to be more Strider races for the kids. But even without them, our son is having a blast.

                                              My then 2 year old son got his Strider late fall of last year. He turned 3 in March of this year and he's now riding a big boy bike. NO TRAINING WHEELS and he looks like he's been riding forever. His balance is awesome and he can turn on a dime. I highly recommend a Strider to everyone. I wish i would of found earlier. Get it you wont regret it!!

                                                    I have a little boy who turned three last month and has had his strider since his second birthday. This bike is awesome! He rides it everyday and even does strider races at our local bmx track. He even has a two wheel bike with out training wheels that he has been able to ride since the was 2 1/2 and we switch which bike we ride to the park weekly and it's over a mile away and he can ride BOTH bikes the entire time. Amazing for a new three year old. Can't wait to buy another one for my 7 month old for his first birthday! Stride on! I'm telling you these bikes are amazing and so much fun!

                                                          My son who is 3 years old received the Strider Sport for Christmas this past year. Unable to ride it outside right away he took to riding it up and down the hallway. Once spring hit he hit the street and quickly learned how to take corners, lean into the turn and above all else mastered Balance! After seeing all the neighbor kids with their peddle bikes he wanted one as well. We put him on a peddle bike which is about the same size as his Strider and he took off with no problems! He is 3 years old...NO TRAINING WHEELS EVER!!!! He has been riding his peddle bike for less than 1 week and looks like he has been riding for Months! Other benefits of this product is that it is very light weight making it easy for my son to use and easy to pick up if he fell down. Assembly was a breeze. The seat and handles are both easily adjustable which was great for my son since he is pretty tall for his age. I will most definitely be recommending this bike to friends and family who are looking to purchase a starter bike. Balance is a hard thing to learn for many kids and with the Strider Bike he learned at his own pace! This is an Amazing Product!! Thank You!!

                                                                My youngest has been scared of riding her big kid bike without training wheels, but is more than old enough to learn. When I received the STRIDER bike for review - they thankfully sent an additional seat with a longer/taller adjustment for her to use since she was 5 when she first started riding her STRIDER. After just a few weeks of riding around in our driveway and down our street on the STRIDER, she asked if I would help her ride her big kid bike. She started pedalling within just a few moments of my help and now rides like a pro! It only took her one afternoon of practice and she was off down the street on her own. All it took was a little time on the STRIDER learning to balance, and get the confidence she needed! I love this STRIDER bike and highly recommend it for all young ones to start riding on. I wish we had used one much sooner as I honestly believe she would have been riding a pedal bike much sooner if she had first learned on a STRIDER instead of training wheel. Now, she has just today moved up a size of bike and is tearing up the neighborhood with her sister and friends and has even asked when our family can all go on bike rides together. I now have a hard time keeping her home, she is always off on her bike somewhere - Thanks STRIDER! *I received a free product for my review - however all my reviews are my personal and honest opinion!
