    Awesome

    Our 8 year old has struggled to learn to ride a bike. Within 1 week he has learned to ride his Guardian bike and loves it. We love to see the smile on his face and being able to keep up with his older brother. Thanks!

    If I could give it 6 stars, I would

    My 9.5 year old daughter wanted a new bike. She never fully learned how to ride a bike, but after seeing her 5 year old cousin riding without any training wheels, she was determined to learn. In the past, her bikes had training wheels, but she never was successful with bike riding without them. She never had a balance bike just because they were just starting to become really trending when she was too big for the standard balance bike sizes. As I was researching bikes and bike brands, I stumbled upon Guardian bikes. I was slightly hesitant because it was obvious that these bikes had a higher price tag than other bikes I could find at local retailers. I really did my research on Guardian bikes and thought that they were very different from their competitors. I loved that I could get a 24 inch bike for my child and have it fully function as a balance bike. I was shocked to also see that it had the SureStop brake system and gears while being able to be a balance bike. I decided to give it a try since I had the ability to return it if need be. I ordered it on a Friday afternoon and it was delivered that Sunday - less than 48 hours later! Assembly was a breeze and the videos were extremely helpful. Within that same afternoon, my daughter went from not having been on a bike in a few years, to riding on it as a balance bike, to riding on it (with pedals!) up and down the road with such confidence! I think that is the best part of it is her ability to gain her own confidence on the bike. We have only had the bike for 1.5 weeks and she has been taking it out most days to go up and down the road. Yesterday was the first time I've ever gone on a bike ride with my child more than just down the road to the next house! I swear she's a better bike rider than me! I know this review is lengthy, but if you are hesitant about their product like I was, just know that it is worth the price for a quality product, especially if your child hasn't been successful in learning how to ride a bike with other methods. I am utterly impressed and so glad that I bought a Guardian bike for my child.

    Guardian small 20in bike

    Excellent experience. Bike arrived quickly and was very easy to assemble. My daughter loves it and I think we will be pulling the training wheels off very soon.

    Such a great bike!

    I bought this for my daughter for her 4th birthday. She knew how to ride with no training wheels already, using a 12 inch hand me down bike we had. She was pretty erratic though, couldn’t steer or brake. Her biking control immediately improved with this bike, right away she was riding in a straight line, easily turning, and figured out how to brake with the hand break (old bike only had pedal brakes which she never figured out) She’s so happy and confident on this bike and now we can take some rides together, now that she can stay on a path and bike safely. Planning to get one of these for my 6 year old when he outgrows his current bike!

    Training Wheels Compatible

    We recommend using the balance bike method when teaching your child to ride a bike, but understand all children learn differently.

    Compatible training wheels can be purchased here for our 14", 16", and 20" Bikes.
