Two Wheeling Tots’ Mission

Two Wheeling Tots is two moms (Natalie and Carrie) on a mission to help you find the best in bikes! Whether you’re looking for a balance bike, pedal bike, helmet, bike trailer, or child bike seat, we make it easy to get your kids (and you!) out riding on bikes (or in trailers or bike seats!) that they will love!

Kids’ bikes need to fit right, match a child’s riding style, and, of course still look cool! We aim to educate parents about kids’ bike products so you can make the best purchase decisions for your kids in as little time as possible.  Basically, we’ve done all the product testing and other research so you don’t have to waste a ton of time doing the research yourself. You can also rest easy knowing that a parent like yourself has actually used these bikes, helmets, and trailers on actual, living, real kids!

That’s why our slogan is: Kids Ride. Moms Review. You Decide.

What Our Team Offers

Two Wheeling Tots fulfills its mission by:

Testing out bike products on actual kids

So many review sites these days just pull together quick lists from Amazon. Even legitimate review sites haven’t actually reviewed a large number of the products they recommend. Two Wheeling Tots has reviewed more bike products than we can even keep track of!

Detailed Reviews

Not only do we test bikes and bike products, but we publish detailed reviews for you. Many other review sites give a pretty top level summary of the products they test. We take our time and get into the details so you can be as informed as you’d like to be.

Best of Lists

We understand that not everyone has the time or desire to get into the nitty gritty details of reviews. Time is precious, so we also compile lists of the best products in every category. These lists are fast and easy reference guides designed to save you time!

How to Choose Buying Guides

We have the most comprehensive buying guides available for Balance BikesKids’ BikesHelmetsBike TrailersTrailer Cycles, and Child Bike Seats! After over 14 years of testing and research, we compiled and summarized all of the knowledge crowding our brains into easy-reference buying guides.

Looking for a balance bike but don’t know how to choose the right size? We’ve got you covered. In the market for a pedal bike but you aren’t sure if your child needs a 16″ bike or a 20″ bike? We have the answer! Confused by all of the different models of bike trailers and child bike seats out there? We’ll help you figure out what features actually matter and which ones you can ignore.

True, Authentic Content

We do NOT allow Sponsored Posts on our site.  All of our reviews are completed by our own team members whom we personally know.  We also do not accept payments for our reviews or allow for any paid links or content placement on our site.

Over the years we have also consulted with many well known kids biking companies and have been featured in several online publications.  We love sharing our passion and knowledge about kids biking helping to educate others on the do and don’t of kids bikes. 

Meet the Two Wheeling Tots Team

Two Wheeling Tots began a bit by accident. In 2009, Natalie bought a tricycle for her oldest daughter’s 2nd birthday. Unfortunately (or fortunately??), her daughter hated it! Natalie spent the next year searching for a better alternative and discovered something she’d never seen before – a balance bike! It was a huge hit for her daughter’s 3rd birthday and Natalie’s passion for balance bikes was born.

Already a mountain biking enthusiast, Two Wheeling Tots became a way for Natalie to share her passion for bikes and adventure with other parents and with her own kids. Since that time, Two Wheeling Tots has evolved along with Natalie’s family. With growing kids came pedal bike reviews and scooter reviews. And as new babies were born, bike trailers and child bike seats became daily life. Helmets, of course, were a necessary component to all of this.

Natalie Martins

Natalie is a sushi-loving, science nerd at heart and has a background in teaching and a love/hate relationship with home-improvement projects. She wishes she had learned to ride on a balance bike, but was born in the wrong generation. She currently resides in the mountain-biking paradise of Salt Lake City, UT with her mountain-biking husband and 3 kids who have been patient and willing bike testers since 2010.

Carrie Wren

Carrie met Natalie when they became college roommates the summer after freshman year. She thought Natalie’s love for N’Sync was a bit annoying, but did think she was really cool when she broke her hand while taking a mountain biking course for P.E. credit. Natalie thought Carrie studied too much and would have benefited from a mountain biking course.

18 years and a few N’Sync concerts later, Carrie joined Natalie in her Two Wheeling Tots quest to Get Out and Ride! She is now is a full-time bike mama with a passion for improving the biking experience for kids and families. With an M.S. in Marketing from Northwestern University, Carrie left the corporate world behind to dedicate her career to testing and improving kids’ bikes and bike products.

After over 7 years and testing over hundreds of bike products, her expertise has led her to collaborate and consult with some of the most respected kid’s bike product brands in the industry, including Guardian Bikes, Retrospec, Thousand, Kids Ride Shotgun, and Prevelo.

Carrie is based in DFW, but travels often to Bentonville, AR for mountain biking adventures with her husband and four little shredders.
