Great christmas present ordered for a 2 yr old

Thanks, perfect for my 28 month old nephew for crimbo!

Never really seen the point of these things. Just buy a bike and take the pedals off, then put them back on when junior has got their balance.
#5

#6
Fab, just ordered one for my son who turned 2 last week. Hope the decent weather lasts long enough to get to the park a few times with it, lol. Heat added, thanks for sharing!

why not just buy a normal bike, take 5 mins to take the pedals off, and then put them back on? saves buying two bikes!
#8
These seem great (we got given one), until you imagine your little one going down a hill. (we live in a residential area....and on a street with a small decline - I#d have nightmares about our 3yr old lad hurtling down the path and onto the road at the T junction at the foot of the hill!)

Not very sensbile....putting your nipper with no sense of danger or road awarenesss ....onto something that he/she can't stop quickly!

The point is once they have their balance and can zoom off you should put them on a proper bike. It bypasses the need for stabilisers
#10
These are fab. My daughter went straight from one of these to a pedal bike without any problems as she had learnt to balance, you'll be amazed how quickly they are able to wizz around. As person above states use in a controlled enviroment and not on steep hills by busy roads. Also for a small child these are lighter and easier to use than a metal framed bike with the pedals taken off. A steal for £20

We bought balance bikes for our twins and they're brilliant - they gained confidence so quickly on them, IMO a normal bike taken to bits is not set up right for young kids to propel with their feet, you've still got sticking out bits to catch legs on - zooming off isn't an issue either as they stop with their feet (or the brake when they remember).

just what i've been looking for for my boy. cheers.

and spend the next 12 months nursing injured knees/shins etc where they keep banging them on the spinning crank arms....

My little boy loves his balance bike, and gets lots of nice comments from passers by in we're in the park - Definitely recommended for nice flat parks, not hilly roads!
#16
Balance bikes are fantastic. For anyone interested, Toys R Us do one called a Magna or something like that and it's currently down from £25 to £20 and in my opinion it is a bit better than the wooden ones.

H&R added for this deal tho.

My son went straight from the balancing bike to a pedal bike in 2 minutes last weekend. Can't recommend them enough. Great price. Heat added.

Even the smallest bikes with pedals taken off would be a lot bigger than this. I would definitely buy it if I hadn't already bought a Specialized Hot Walk for my daughter.

There's certainly some evangilism going on here!

My 4yr old lad went from this straight from this balance bike to a mono cycle which he now rides while juggling chainsaws in Covent Garden - it's all thanks to this balance bike ;-)

X).Thanks, perfect for my 48 month old nephew .;)
#21
That should read 28 month, doh!
#22
would this be ok for a small 4 year old?

A "proper" bike for £19.90? - Get Real!!

Bought one last time they had the offer on.
Pros - its cheaper than anywhere else.

Cons - adjusting the seat is fiddly so if you have 2 kids of different sizes using it its a bit of a pain.
- Turning circle is poor and tyres are plastic not rubber.

Overall - for £20 delivered its worth it but the idea about taking pedals off a regular bike if done properly ie (whole chain/pedal unit removed) is a sharper idea especially if you can pick up an old bike free or for a few quid.

Balance bikes are a good idea - this one isnt the best but then again the best ones cost nearer £100.

I bought a 10" bike (Sept 09) which was useless and unuseable, then the balance bike for my little boy at Christmas. We have since bought a 14" 'normal' bike as he's nearly 4 but he much prefers his balance bike because he can go fast. It also has the benefit of going up/downhill easier for a toddler as they can manage their speed! Only wish i'd bought a balance bike for my other two- well worth the money and the child builds confidence which gets them ready for a'proper' bike.

OK you won't get one for £19.90 but do you still see your kid riding his/her balance bike for ever? Actually, you can easily get one for under £20. Have you heard of a website called EBay?
My point though is that your child will want a bike after they get their balance and you will still have to buy one, but now you have to buy the bike and you have already spent £20 on the balance thing.

By all means if you think its better to spend the £20 on a balance bike then do it, but we got by perfectly well with a bike with pedals removed.

err, any bike you buy off ebay will cost you at least a tenner in postage (unless you are lucky enough to be near the seller) and you will also have no idea how roadworthy that used bike is.

My 7 yr old has been riding a 'proper' bike (mint condition Raleigh that cost £10 from a charity shop incidentally) for 18 months now and never needed stabilisers after using a balance bike. BUT, she still enjoys messing about on the drive on the balance bike because it is FUN.

And you haven't commented about what you did with the spinning crank arms yet?

Well, firstly there are plenty of bikes on Ebay and if you use the 'nearest first' option you can look for ones close to you, but as you say charity shops are also a good source. What did I do with swinging crank arms? Nothing. It wasn't a problem. My daughter NEVER caught her legs on them, maybe we were just lucky or maybe it isn't a problem, I don't know. Like I said, we got by without a balance bike by taking the pedals off a bike, but if you think this is a problem buy a sodding balance bike, I really don't care. Only trying to be helpful but obviously that sort of thing isn't acceptable to some folk.

This bike is rubbish, normally £40, it's poor value at £20
