Balance Is Key!

Written by
Here's a review from Stephanie. We really like this review because it hits about every key point in a child's learning to ride. "I just bought this bike for my 3 year old daughter (in pink of course). I found out about this bike from a friend who ordered them for her then 3 year old. At first I scoffed at the idea that a bike with no pedals and no training wheels would teach a little kid how to ride a bike. Well when her daughter was riding a pedal bike without training wheels I began to change my…

KTM Strider Reviewed in Transworld Motocross!

Written by
The KTM Strider was recently given a great review in Transworld Motocross magazine! "We have only one thing to say about the Strider bikes: why didn't we think of that? These are amazing starter bikes for the little BMXer/MXer in your life. They promote balance and the concept of bike riding without those sissy training wheels. Add in the KTM branding, and it only reinforces the moto mind." ~ Transworld Motocross (The Things You Need) That sounds about right to us! Let us know if you see Striders anywhere else in the press and keep sharing your photos, videos and…

BMX Gabe!

Written by
If we comment on a blog in our blog will a wormhole open in the space-time continuum? Gabe's Mom recently said us a review and a link to her blog that we found really interesting. Not only are there some great photos, but she shares a story of falling down and getting back up. "I just wanted to thank you guys for such an amazing bike! My son has had his Strider for over a year now and there still isn't a day that goes by that he doesn't insist it is by his side! He now rides at our…

Run Over My Foot

Written by
Here is an excellent follow up to the yesterday's blog entry. We love hearing stories like this...Keep posting! "I was researching a bike to buy for my 3-year old girl for Christmas. She had her heart set on a pink Disney Princesses bike. What I read about the quality of that bike turned me off as I could see her breaking down and crying when it fell apart in a matter of days. I was looking around for an alternative and saw that the Strider bike was a big seller and decided to look further. I became convinced that the…

Some Are Fast and Some Are Slow

Written by
Ran across this video today on Youtube and thought it was pretty cool! This Dad is very enthusiastic and Joey (19 months) is very committed...especially for his first time on a Strider. (You have to love their high five/fist bump combo too.) It's important to remember that every child has varying levels of comfort on their Strider. Some, like Joey, will feel comfortable with an incline and lifting their feet right away. Most, like my daughter, will spend the first few months walking with their butt off the seat. No matter what speed they take to the Strider make sure…

Tricycles, Training Wheels, and Crashes...Oh My!

Written by
Warning: Great review followed by a video with some nasty trike/training wheel crashes. "We bought two Striders for our 2.5 year old twins who had been really struggling with trying to peddle a tricycle. Within a couple of days they were zipping down the slight incline on our gravel driveway, and really balancing with no adult training required. We saw them crash many times trying to negotiate riding a tricycle, but they really learned to balance quite easily on the Strider bike. It is well and thoughtfully engineered, strong, but light in weight for small kids. 5 out of 5…
