Review

Glide bikes balance bike reviews and comparisonsGlide Bikes are high quality bikes with excellent customer service and reviews.  Their frame is solid and they come complete with a hand brake, footrest and a turning limiter.  Designed by biking dads, Glide Bikes also have a fine-tuned geometry that keeps the center of balance low, thereby allowing kids to balance at slower speeds.  Glides bikes footrest peg is also one of their distinguishing features.  While I generally do not recommend bikes with footrest, Glide Bikes’ peg does rotate 90 degrees out-of-the-way of the path of the riders.

 

Ezee Rider (Original)

The Ezee rider is a great bike at a great price, complete with hand brakes and a kickstand.  For an extra $35, air tires can be purchased to swap out the foam tires that come standard.

Ezee Glider (Newest Addition)

Glide Bikes latest edition, the Ezee rider, is their smallest bike to date and is specifically designed for the youngest riders.  Not only does it have a minimum seat height of 11 inches, it has reversible handlebars that allow to help minimize the reach for the youngest riders.   A removable footrest, child-sized brake, kickstand and quick-release seat adjust also come standard on the Ezee.

Previous models of the Ezee Rider came with air tires, due to problems with flats, the latest models will be shipped with foam.  Air tires however are still available through special order by contacting them directly through their website.  Although flats are an issue, I still believe air is your best bet, just be sure to fill the tires with tire sealant as soon as possible.
