Strider Bike Review & Giveaway – ENDED

January 4, 2010

Training wheels can get you stuck on uneven ground, leaving you pedaling as fast as you can and not going anywhere at all, they can also cause tip overs leading to injury and Children often become very dependant on them.

Strider has created a great Balance bike, no training wheels and no pedals to figure out, simply sit on it and push it with your feet, The Strider running bike helps toddlers learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling so theres no tip overs or wobbles to make them firgtened or hesitant, it improves balance and lets them get use to the feel and function of a bike and if they need to stop they simply stop walking/running. The Strider glides along with your child at a speed that they feel comfortable and safe . All they do is sit on it or stradle it and begin walking while holding onto the handlebars.

Strider sent us a bike in Orange and it is very sturdy and well built, I know it will still be around and in great condition when holden is ready for it. It was a hit right away even with Chase and Blake wanting to test it out. We had a terrible autumn with lots of rain and cold weather and then winter hit so Maddisyn has been practicing it in the basement (we had to rearange the furniture and lose the coffee table though) and in Papa’s garage and is surely getting the hang of it. She loves walking around with it, she hasn’t been able to run or glide with it in such a small space though but it’s not for lack of trying. I think that by the time winter is over she’ll be whizing around on it outside and hopefully be ready for a big girl bike from the easter bunny.

Designed for children, ages 1 – 5, the Strider™ running bike holds several advantages over ordinary beginner’s bikes. The Strider™ will:
– Teach your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence. Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t. Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal — skimping on developing your child’s motor skills. And these bikes are heavy, clunky and difficult for kids to control.
– Provide pure fun, right out of the box.
If your child can walk… your child can ride a Strider™.
Even tiny little children, before the age of two, are drawn to the Strider™. At first, kids will grab the handle bars, straddle the bike and walk without ever sitting down on the seat.
– Give your child a safer way to learn bike riding. Tricycles tip over, scrape ankles, and are difficult to pedal. Bicycles with training wheels are tall, heavy, unstable and downright scary for young riders. Both have the potential to cause painful injuries and fear.
Not true with the Strider™. The Strider™ running bike is free from any cables, chains, sprockets, pedals or protrusions that can harm your child.

Available in 6 great colors Blue, green, Orange, Pink, Red and Yellow, the Strider’s seat is adjustable from 11″ to 16″ so it will easily grow with your child and can be fun for a long time, even after they’ve perfected the art of riding a pedal bike. If only it was a bit bigger I have a feeling Lee would be out there with them lol.
