Keeping our Balance -- Strider Bike Review

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Christmas seems to be the perfect time for a Little to receive a new bike!  I know I got a special new bike as a little girl and two years ago my husband and I gifted a new bike to our daughter.  This year it is Cooper's turn for a new bike.  He has no idea, but this is the coolest bike ever!

STRIDER™ balance bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. STRIDER balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels.

The STRIDER’s simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. This unique design teaches young children balance on two wheels right from the start, avoiding developmental delays typical with tricycles and training-wheel bikes.

As you can see in this picture, this bike does not have pedals.  The Strider bike is made to help teach your children to balance without training wheels.  Wondering where to show your Little to put their feet?  There are 2 strips right there on the bar for them to rest while riding.

Let me also tell you, this bike is light!   This is a great feature!  I don't have to worry about it crushing my Little Man if he falls down.  Compared to another bike, it is lighter than my daughter's tricycle from when she was a little one.   

The hardest part about putting it together was getting the handlebar to be straight with the wheel.  Once we tightened the clamp, it was either too tight to clamp all the way or too lose to keep the handlebar straight.  Finally after a few tries, we got it ready!

This bike is made with children ages 18 months through 5 years.  It comes with 2 seats to help the bike grow as our children grow.  Strider really did think of everything!  I would recommend this for girls and boys alike.  There are quite a few colors to choose from, so head on over and put your order in today! 

This review is based strictly on my own opinion.  Others may have different opinions or experiences with the products mentioned above.  I was provided samples free of charge by the company or a PR Agency.  I have provided my open and honest opinions.  No other type of compensation was received for this review.
