Balance bikes are pedal-less bicycles that help younger children transition from tricycles to 2-wheeled bicycles. These innovative bikes let kids focus on steering and balance without being distracted by pedaling and speed. Since they are are propelled by foot, they allow kids to get a better sense of balancing on 2 wheels. Some are able to skip training wheels entirely when they transition to a pedal bike. When choosing a balance bike, you’ll want to consider the weight and size of the bike frame. A bike that’s too heavy will make it hard for your child to stay upright. You’ll also want to consider size and adjustability, since they are made for quickly-growing toddlers and preschoolers.
