Balance Bike Ridgeback Scoot £74.99 @ Winstanleys Bikes

7
Found 3rd Jul 2014
Have been hunting around for a balance bike for my little lad, and found this deal. Yes its expensive, Yes there are cheaper ones, but finding a lighter weight cheap bike is very hard.

Given that it was £25 cheaper than anywhere else i looked, and in stock (as i phoned them), and free delivery, I'm quite happy.

I just bought a Strider, it is great! Around same price too

Another way to save money is buy a normal bike and remove the whole pedal assy & bottom bracket then you have an instant balance bike. When the child has mastered the balance then refit the pedals. Did this with my son and he got straight on the bike he knew already and pedalled straight away. :0)

Hi, i tried taking the pedals out on a cheap halfrauds bike i had originally bought for him. The two issues he still had were the weight of the bike and the geometry (it was just not quite right). Im looking forward to the weekend if it arrives in time.

terrible service at winstanleys..i had a disappointing wait for a week to end up with no bike! their website is awful and the staff uninterested

yeah it is expensive but if cheaper than anywhere else for it then hot! had a WeeRide balance bike for my then 2yr old and its unbelievable how they learn to balance at such a young age. he is now 3 and rides a pedal bike and never needed stabilizers, just took to it straight away :-) .
