If you have ever been curious about a balance bike, it is a pretty interesting contraption – I mean a bike with no pedals? Weird! It’s weird, but it’s so great – they learn to balance on two wheels by pushing themselves off with their feet. We are planning on buying a proper two wheel bike, with pedals (King refers to this as a big boy bike) very soon. Since his balancing on the old balance bike is pretty amazing (probably better then mine since I haven’t road a bike, since I don’t remember) we are going to go straight into two wheels – no training wheels. It should be pretty fun/stressful for me (and sad for me, two wheel bike is some serious big boy status) – Harley can’t wait for King to move on up, she wants the balance bike but bad. So if you were ever thinking about a balance bike, two thumbs up from this crowd – and I will update you on how well he does two wheeling (no training wheels in between) when we get there!
PS. our balance bike is from Kettler.
