"I never write reviews but I couldn't resist this one. I set out less than two months ago to buy my 2 1/2 year old son a bike (with training wheels). I discovered the Strider online and ordered it thinking that with the money back guarantee, we had nothing to lose. He's been riding it for the last 6 weeks, not even every day. Three days ago we put him on a two wheel bike, no training wheels! Check out the video taken yesterday on his third day riding a "big boy bike". Trey will be 2 years, 9 months old tomorrow. And he's riding a bike with no training wheels! Amazing--thank you!"

Toddler Bikes: Best Money We Ever Spent!

Mother of twins Sarah Farthing recently bought Strider bikes for her boys. She sent us this comment:

"I have twin 3 year old boys and we just bought Striders for them about two weeks ago. It is the best money we have ever spent on them! These bikes have changed the way we spend our evenings and made exercise a part of every single day for all four of us. I have attached three fun videos. It is obviously not Christmas but I think it speak volumes about the excitement kids feel about your bikes that one of my boys made up a song "I got a new bike for Christmas!" just because he felt so much joy over getting it!

Thank you for this wonderful product, I recommend these bikes to everyone I know. I first saw them on The Good Stuff Guide recently..."

Learning to Ride a Bike

We've been inundated with testimonials from parents lately who are thrilled that their child is on a regular pedal bike after just a few short time on their Strider PREBike.

Here are just a few of the comments submitted on our site and you can read more and become a fan on our Facebook page:

"We bought a Strider bike for our 2 year old son in october and 7 months later at 2 years and 10 months old he is now riding a two wheeled bike - no training wheels. He absolutely LOVED his Strider bike and it made it so easy for him to transition to the pedal bike. Thanks for such a great product." - Alyson Miyose

"Hands down the best investment we have made on an item for our son. He was riding his by the time he was 18 months old. We were so happy that the bike fit him. He is now 3 1/2, the bike still fits him and he still loves to ride it! The transition to a pedal bike was seamless. We love this product and can't say enough wonderful things about it! Thank you for creating such an incredible product! We can't wait to pass it on to our youngest" - Amber Tjeerdsma

Started Riding at 14 Months!

Here's a video of Braven Santos, two years and three months old, but started riding his Strider at just 14 months!

We just wanted to say "thank you" for allowing our son to enjoy biking as much as we do. He is 2 yrs and 3 months old and has been riding his Strider since he was 14 months. We uploaded a few youtube videos of him enjoying his bike. We had to build him a jump already. We have several friends who have purchased a Strider for their child after seeing how much Brevan enjoys his. Do you have any plans to make a bike that will grow with them? We are searching for a bike with pedals. I am not sure if if would be possible to make the Strider with an add on of pedals when they get ready. The bike is the perfect size for him and he handles it so well. Again, thanks and if you would like to watch him in action just go to the youtube website and search Brevan, Strider. There are three videos to choose from. One on his jump and two at Santos bike trail in Ocala, Fl. Enjoy!

Here's an email from a young Strider rider, pretty impressive grammar for a 2-year-old!

name: Graham Schuman

message: My name is Graham Schuman and I have a blue Strider bike.  I am 2 years old and ride it all the time.  I get to go to the dirt jumps with my dad and I just love it.  Check out this video.

Glad the twins enjoy their Striders, very interesting comparison to the wooden balance bikes.

Let me just say the kids LOVE these bikes! We ordered our 2 year old twin boys a wooden run bike last year and they fit so poorly they could never use them, even after a year they were just too large and awkward. After awhile they were in fact scared to try. I was about to give up and thought they just didn’t like run bikes. But I saw a friend’s child whizzing around on one again and just had to try again. This time I did my research – I knew I needed a bike that was very adjustable, metal, affordable and light. Oh and FUN! Strider bikes fit that bill perfectly, I also loved that I could buy any extra parts cheap and that the bike would grow with them - not just in the seat but also the handle bars. Within 3 days of having a Strider bike they were building ramps with their Dad and zooming all over the place! I love how adjustable they are – great for my very short twins. We live on a dirt road on the edge of a mountain bike trail system. These bikes are the perfect thing for where we live. Pedaling a tricycle on grass and gravel just isn’t that exciting. The boys even take their bikes out on the trails with their Dad. It is just amazing! We are big fans. Customer service is wonderful too.

Thanks a bunch, Zoe Johnson

Strider PREbike Reviews - November 2009

The Love of a Family Makes Life Beautiful

"Summer has been walking around the house with her Strider. I was so impressed that she figured it out so quickly and confidently."

My Wee View

"My daughter along with other toddlers will no longer have to go through the painful experience of “learning” how to ride a bike.  Much like talking, they will just learn on their own with the Strider Running Bike.  This Bike for toddlers, doesn’t have any peddles, is low to the ground and is made specifically for little ones to learn balance.  So before getting your kids a trike with 3 wheels, go straight for a two wheeler."

This Mama Rocks

"My niece is at the perfect age and she absolutely loved her bike when it arrived. We made sure to send it in her favorite color."

J. Leigh Designz

"There are many reviews out there about its use and abilities and I'll get there but I really wanted to talk about the quality of this bike. The quality is exceptional and I can tell that its going to last a longer then Gavin will use it. This means that not only will you get your value out of it from one child put it can be used by sibling later as well."

Mommy of 1 And Counting

"Avery loved it! We got it delivered to our door, She was eating breakfast when it came. So I was able to put it together before she even saw it. She IMMEDIATELY jumped on the bike and started to ride."

Oh My Baby

"If you haven't heard of this bike before I'm sure you'll want one by the end of this post. This has got to be one of my favorite things I've had the pleasure to review. Not only because it's such a great product but because J truly loves this bike."

Strider PREbike

The Mommy Files

"When he first started, he was literally running while sitting on the bike – hence the name Running Bike.  Now, he zooms around it likes it’s nothing!  I felt comfortable letting my 3 year old ride on the bike himself instead of jumping for him every time he wobbled back and forth!  This bike is definitely 'Approved by The Mommy-Files!'"
