Great First Pedal Bike

My four year old daughter has been riding a balance bike since she was three years old. She learned to ride the Guardian bike very quickly without training wheels. We watched the Guardian “How to Teach a Kid to Ride a Bike” and she was off riding by herself. We love the braking system on this bike. Great first pedal bike!

Amazing products and company

10/10 in customer service and thrilled by my experience (I had a delivery issue not their fault but they solved it).

Unbelievably amazing

Cannot say enough great things about this company. We ordered the wrong colour for our daughter. Called to ask if I could change the colour and Sam informed me that we could keep… yes, keep the original bike and pass it forward to a child that needs a bike! On top of that, he sent the new bike out with no postage charge. Unbelievable. Just amazing. Thank you so much. We passed the bike on to a children’s charity for Christmas. Thank you so much

Fast shipping, easy instructions and a quality product

We gave our 4 year old this bike for his birthday and couldn't be happier with the purchase! The bike was shipped extremely fast, the online instructions were very clear and the bike itself is awesome. Our son had been using a balance bike for a year and transitioned easily to the Guardian bike. In about 30 minutes he was was able to start himself pedaling unassisted and stop himself safely. On top of all that, he loved the cool green and gray color scheme. Wonderful experience all around. Really glad we got the Guardian.

Great customer service

Set up was super easy. Their customer service response time is awesome. We were getting a clicking noise when my son was riding it, emailed them on a Saturday at noon, they responded with an easy fix about 20 minutes later.
