          We have purchased Strider balance bikes for 2 of our boys when they were about 18 months old. They were able to ride a pedal bike by 3 years old, but still prefer their Strider bikes for mountain trails and playing at the skate/bike parks.

                I cannot begin to say enough about our Strider bike. Our son received a regular training wheel bike for his 2nd birthday from grandma. Though we worked and worked he could not get it down. Then my husband saw a story on Strider. I admit I was a skeptic as I had never heard of a balance bike and doubted it greatly however he talked me into getting one. We had to purchase a 16" because our son was a little older at that point and is naturally tall. We received our Strider late one summer and used it into the fall and part of the following summer until his birthday in August when my father bought him a bike for his birthday. You cannot believe my amazement when he hopped on the new bike and took off! He was a little wobbly at first but never fell or required assistance. He just jumped on and was riding!!!! I will never again purchase a bike with training wheels. Strider has me for life!!!!

                      My son started using his strider bike when he was 16 months old and he has loved it. He is five-and-a-half now and just yesterday we purchased his first pedal bike. This is not an exaggeration, he was riding it, by himself, in 5 minutes and in about an hour he was cruising around. No balance issues at all, no confidence issues. It did take some time to figure out the whole breaking thing though. All in all, the proof is in the results. My son put hundreds of hours into his strider bike and his little sister, age 3+, has been riding hers for well over a year and a half now. These little two wheeled machines have allowed us to get outside with our kids in ways we could have only hoped for, including some winter rides. He is very excited to pass his strider along to the son of a friend of ours who just turned 2. The bike has some dings from some very goo falls and wipeouts, but it is tough as nails and we can't wait to see our friend using it. I love to ride my bike, so I am so thankful that my son's strider bike has helped him to so easily transition to an activity we will be abel to do together for years. Thank you so much, what a great product.

                                  Bought our first Strider bike 4 years ago when our oldest grandson turned 2. That bike was used by two grandsons and is still in great shape. Just bought two more Strider bikes for our twin granddaughters who turn two in a couple weeks. Can't wait for them to try them out. They like sitting in their older brothers Strider already.

                                        We bought this bike for our 2 yr old grandson and he Loves it! He rides it everywhere, inside and outside. He has already learning to balance And tries to do tricks its so cute. Wish the seat had some padding. When he outgrows this one which will be a few years from now we will buy another. I also like the accessories you can buy for it too.

                                              This bike is absolutely fantastic! Prior to trying out the Strider brand, my little one was scared of the traditional children's bike. Not only did Strider provide the opportunity to learn and master balancing first but its lack of all the complicated pieces made it less scary. Our older child learned how to ride a traditional 2-wheeled bike within a week of being on a balance bike and I am thrilled that, with Strider, our youngest now has the opportunity to perfect the skills and do so on his own time. Strider bikes give children the ability to control their own destiny by making learning not only more simple but more fun. These bikes are absolutely fantastic and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone hoping to learn how to ride, no matter your age!
