Tricycle recs?

We are thinking of getting Liam a tricycle for his birthday.  Any recommendations? Worth splurging on the Radio Flyer one?

What age do they usually move up to a bike with training wheels?  I don't want to sink too much $ into a trike if he'll only use it for a year.

Thanks!

  • Or could he skip a trike and ride something like this instead?

  • We got Nate a Radioflyer tricycle from Craigslist.  Definitely look there!  The one we got was barely used and I think I paid $15 for it.  We got the one that has the handle so you can help steer a younger kid (we got it before he turned 2).

    I think one of the main considerations is how long his legs are.  My parents got Nate a Big Wheels type thing, and his legs are barely long enough to reach the pedals.  So he mostly scoots himself around instead of pedaling right now.  A bigger bike with training wheels might have too much distance between the seat & pedals.  I'd want to try it out in a store before committing to a bigger bike.
