Balance bikes are officially “all the rage” when it comes to teaching young children how to master the basics of balance needed to graduate to a big bike. The STRIDER ST is one of the best examples of these teaching bikes. It teaches the fundamental gross motor skill of balance at the child’s own pace. They control how they move. It usually starts out with tentative steps and gradually advances to pushing and gliding. Assembly is a snap especially since Strider includes all the tools you will need. Start to finish took about 10 minutes. Parents liked that the seat and handlebars are adjustable so it can accommodate a child as young as 18 months (really!) or as old as 5. The handlebars are easy to grab for little hands and the tires roll easily and smoothly. The solid build of the bike led parents to comment that they could imagine an older child handing this down to siblings making this a superb long term investment.
