Three styles of this Balance Bike have been reduced to £29.99 and they are fab!

The BMXie balance bike doesn't compromise : a real BMX-styled bicycle frame, oversized tubing but extremely lightweight. Now fitted with Rubber skin tyres. Airless Rubber skin tyres are a new kind of tyre that gives you the best possible grip and you do not have to inflate them. A foam core means thay cannot puncture, an outside rubber layer makes them just like rubber tyres. Great grip and no pump!

Free home.delivery too
I've got 3 kids.
I know next to nothing I didn't know pre-kids except for 2 things:
1. Routine is everything
2. Get them a balance bike as early as possible.

My first two went through the agony (to my back amongst other things) of stabilisers and learning to ride.
My 3rd had a balance bike when she was 3..,and could ride a pedal bike the second I put her on one on her 4th birthday.

Typical in every sense probably a few available in Alaska X)
Are these too small for a 5 yr old?

These bikes have 12" wheels so are aimed at kids from 3 yrs old. So unless your 5 year old is relatively short they are likely to find these a bit small.

​definitely. my 5 year old often tries to ride her brother's and her legs are much too long! much more suited for a 2 year old, even my 3 year old is nearly too big for it now.
It's missing the pedals

stock in wakefield wf1 1xu
Got this to put away for LOs 2nd birthday. Checked inside leg and perfect for him. Made up that it is a decent well known brand too. Hopefully this means well made!

But they do have stock for home delivery if you can wait 14 days and it's free.
£30 is about right for a decent balance bike - I would ignore the RRP. You can get a decent balance bike from Halfords for around £30 - I think its the wizzer one. They are definitely worth getting as my son has learned the basics on this for about a year and next I will get him a bike with stabilizers, but I don't expect the stabilizers to be on too long.
no stock of the bmxie one (not even for delivery)

: (
All kids should have these from as early as poss, awesome tools for teaching them how to use bikes. Got both mine on these from 2/3 and they are accomplished cyclists now.

Definitely so much quicker using a balance bike like this compared to the stabilisers route.
Just buy them their first bike and take the pedals off.
Cold another argos wild goose chase.Wouldnt surprise me if argos go under this year.Nothing is ever in stock.
Balance bikes are great for kids, got one for our first child.
He was on it from about 18months, at about 2 1/2 he started to use a peddle bike with stabilizers every so often to get him use to peddling, at about 3 3/4 I took the stabilizers off and within 5 minutes he was off.
Now going through the same process with our second son.
Highly recommend a balance bike to anyone with young children.

I like the balance bikes from decathalon but this is a good price.

​It's a clearance item, so there's always gonna be limited stock, although this time it was actually available to order online, with free delivery as well. You're just late to the party
no pedals, chain, crank, gears, bell, etc and yet it is dearer than a bike with stabilisers.

i'm in!
never really seen the point of buying a balance bike, we just took the pedals off a normal bike then when they got the hang of it put the pedals back on

Because there's still a cog and chain to get in their way as they're swinging their legs back. And usually the bars that the pedals go on.

But each to their own

Yeah maybe it depends how early you want to do it, the ages on here are much younger than we got ours on them.
ordered for home delivery with free postage...and surprise surprise, argos had to cancel it due to stock problems.

I got the same message. That's ridiculous, anyone know how it works? I ordered very early on.

My kids were 2 or 3 so there wasn't really a suitable bike to take pedals off.

My boy is now 10 and races BMX for our local team and is very skilled on a bike compared to his friends, some of whom have never ridden anything much.
Ordered at £29.99, and two days later my order got cancelled by Argos due to 'no stock'. I see it on the website now listed at £59.99. Utter sham artists.

I contacted them and they said I could re-order from the site and wouldn't re-instate my order.

Did anyone get the bike at this price I've just been told they are not honouring it as it was a pricing error. My son is so upset.
Just seen posts after sending this silly me. Aren't they horrid, I've had enough of Argos.
