Balance Bikes: Comparison Charts and Ratings
The Best First Bike for Kids
Ideal for ages 18-months to 5 years
Balance bikes are a far better choice than tricycles or training wheels. They teach a child to balance, which is the hardest part of learning to ride a bike. Once a child masters their balance bike, they easily transition to a pedal bike. No training wheels ever needed!
