‘Would I recommend the bike…… Yes! Alice has really developed balance and stability on the bike’
Would I recommend the bike…… Yes! Alice really appears to have developed balance, stability and braking skills.
We encouraged taking the bike outside and overtime the skill of riding the bike improved. We can now ride easily for 1 mile to the local park, and also get up quite a bit of speed! She has learnt to use her feet to slow down (ruined a pair of trainers though!)
The bike is extremely light, so when out and about is really easy to carry back home when our daughter decides she has had enough and wants to be carried. The bike now goes virtually everywhere with us now and appears to have filled a gap between trike and balance bikes which we saw as the next stage.

Another benefit is the bike can get dirty when outside, however a spray with the hosepipe and easily cleaned to bring back indoors. We have now had the bike for circa 6 weeks and Alice has really developed balance and stability on the bike so much so we are now contemplating getting a Islabike Rothan balance bike for Christmas.
