nice thanks

What a pointless piece of kit. Might as well just buy a real bike...it's not rocket science

Great idea. After using balance bikes for 6 months a child should be able to move to a real bike (without numpty stabilisers) and cycle properly before they are 4 years old.

I love these but your price is wrong (unless im missing something). Link you provide says £23.99

£23.99 now

A bike without pedals.

Where's the fun in that?

Oh shut up. Whenever balance bikes come up on here there's always this same old comment. There should be no argument at all that balance bikes help enormously to get their balance and then they quickly progress to pedalling without using stabilisers. Everyone I know who's used them praises them.

Yes, you could take the pedals of a bike instead, however these have smaller wheels then most standard children's bikes, are usually lighter and easier to pick up and bung in the car/hang off a pram.

Silly comment.My son had a balance bike when he was 3 and he got straight on a normal bike when he was 4 and has never needed stabilisers. These are brilliant for training kids to use a bike. Much better than stabilisers.

Get a grip.....balance bikes are a waste of time and money....end of

Link shows £23.99 as price so not sure if you've posted the correct one :-(

And for those who have a problem with balance bikes then how about just scrolling past the deal instead of adding a daft comment - these bikes are great for helping children learn to BALANCE - that's the point of them :-)

Alternatively just take the pedals off a proper bike. Instant balance bike, then pop them back on afterwards, simple

Price was correct at time of posting. Amazon prices do fluctuate so it could drop down again....

So does this mean the zillions of people who learned how to ride bikes with the pedals on were doing it all wrong?(_;)

My daughter would not take to her bike. tried for over a year and the only result was blind panic on her part whenever she saw her bike. I finally got feed up and took the pedals off to make it into a balance bike. 24 hours later she had the pedals back on and was riding with confidence.

Ordinarily I'd suggest taking pedals off a regular bike, because balance bikes are a bit of a luxury, but frankly, if you're not confident with a spanner and a bottom bracket or don't have the tools, I think that at under £20 this would be worth saving the time and bother.

As for the general utility of a balance bike, I'm sold on them, and convinced that stabilisers to more harm than good.

Of close, when I recommended that a mate with the same problem try it, he reported on Monday morning that, having taken the peaks off his sons bike on the Saturday, his son spent the rest of the weekend complaining that 'daddy had broken his bike'. Because your can't win with kids!

£18.63 for a bike ?, you can get a car for that !

Pot, kettle etc!
However, I do apologise for the rudeness in my reply.
