Bike Question

I'm looking to buy DS a bike for Christmas.  He has a trike, but does not pedal it very often.  He can, he just doesn't.  So I was wondering what people thought about a balance bike vs a regular bike with training wheels.  Any info/thoughts is appreciated.

Re: Bike Question

  • I love the balance bike for DD.  I don't think she'll ever need training wheels and will probably be ready for a 2 wheeler with pedals next summer.  However, pedaling is an important developmental skill.  I'm not a fan of training wheels though.  I'd get a balance bike, but don't retire the tricycle yet.

  • We have 2 regular training wheel bikes and just bought a balance bike.

    I wish I'd done the balance bike from the get go.

     

    Our IF journey: 1 m/c, 1 IVF with only 3 eggs retrieved yielding Dylan and a lost twin, 1 shocker unmedicated BFP resulting in Jace, 3 more unmedicated pregnancies ending in more losses.
    Total score: 6 pregnancies, 5 losses, 2 amazing blessings that I'm thankful for every single day.

  • We love the balance bike. It is one of DS's most used toys. And it's just a fairly cheap one from target.com!
