    was beyond thrilled to discover your bike company!!! I overlooked this option at first due to price point but the investment just made sense! Zero complaints. Only the best for design, safety, shipping and service!!! Top notch all around!

    4 year old loves it!!!

    This has been a great bike! My 4 year old out grew his balance bike from another manufacturer and decided to get one with pedals and loved the brake system and ability to remove the pedals. This allowed him the confidence to use the larger bike and also practice the brakes without compromising his ability to train still. Can’t wait to put the pedals on!

    Ride like the wind!

    This bike was exactly what my 4 year old needed to get riding! She has been on a balance bike for a while, but was struggling to transition to pedals. She can handle her new bike easily she was peddling with no help on the second day!

    Out of the box my husband, who was mechanical all his life, was very impressed. It’s been a long while since we have seen anything that appears so well made, and good looking. Can’t wait for the weather to clear so our grandson can learn to ride. Thank you!!

    Fantastic First Pedal Bike!

    The customer service was extremely fast to respond and very good! Most importantly, my daughter loves her new bike! We kept the pedals off for her first ride, but she was rapidly ready to get them on. She rides it all the time and I'm so glad she's learning good brake control.

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