Strider Bikes: Excellent Tool for Kids

We recently purchased a Strider bike for our son who turned 2 in January (2012). Of course we had to go with the Honda, and he is now obsessed. He has had it for three days and has already rode it for around 6 hours, and is already picking up his feet and coasting a little.

If you have never seen or heard of these bikes, they are basically a pedal-less bicycle that give the child confidence in leaning and riding on two wheels while eliminating the awkward pedaling motions and training wheels. I can really see the benefit of this little bike, and really think it will give my son a leg up on riding his PW50 and help get the training wheels off sooner. Not only that he really loves it. I will keep you posted on the progress he makes with it. I highly recommend this tool to anyone who wants their kids to develop a sense of two wheel balance.

There is a two strips of grip tape on the frame under the seat area so when they do start to pick their feet up they can rest them there

my little cousin learned this way, they called it a "balance bike", can you just not get a bike and take off the crank and then put it back on when he's able to ride? save some money

we picked up a small little girl's bike for my daughter and i took the pedals off. the chain and sprocket were a little more difficult, but yeah, pedal-less bikes... good stuff.
there are some cool balance bikes out there. my son has an all wooden one that fell apart from normal usage :/
i saw one where the kids can almost stand like normal and just run like crazy
