Strider Bike

I know a lot of people buy bikes for holiday gifts, if you are looking for the perfect bike for a beginner the Strider bike is what you are looking for. The Strider bike is a perfect bike for beginners no matter what the age group is. Strider bikes come in a variety of sizes and age groups including:
18 months-5 years old
6-12 years old
13+ years old
The Strider bike is an innovative product that focuses on teaching children to balance on two wheels without having to pedal. It is the perfect starter bike because it encourages bike riding and balancing without training wheels. The Strider bike is easy to control and lightweight that increases stability and confidence. The primary focus of the Strider bike is balance. They are free from chains and pedals which can hurt a child. It is also a safe and smooth transition to a pedal bike.

Strider Bike
I appreciate the innovative concept. I love the fact that it teaches balance on two wheels versus using training wheels. I have found that training wheels offer a false sense of security which makes transiting to a two wheel bike difficult. I made the mistake of doing that with my son, and he wiped out pretty bad on a two wheel bike and will not get on a bike to this day because of that. I also appreciate the fact that it does not have pedals that give the child an opportunity to concentrate on balancing rather than balancing and pedaling. Additionally, because it is lightweight it is easy to control.
The 12” Classic Strider bike is the smallest bike that is ideal for ages 18 months to 5 years. As you know, I have two small children in my home, so this was the perfect bike for them.

The 12” Classic Strider features:
Standard 22.2mm steel handlebar and soft urethane grips with protective ends. Machined aluminum binder clamp allows height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”). 5mm wrench included.
Strider-exclusive, ultralight one-piece wheels sport a raised-letter, five-spoke design with ten bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible.
Top-quality sealed cartridge bearings roll smooth and never need adjustment.
EVA polymer (industrial foam) tires are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. Best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.
The durable, all-weather mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips. Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, this seat allows for proper riding position and posture. ** riders over three years old may need XL saddle and long seat post sold separately.

Bar and seat clamps
Machined aluminum binder clamp allows saddle height adjustment from 28-41cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child. 5mm wrench included.
Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike
Brake mount
Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests. Brake kit sold separately.
