[BMR] Training/Balance Bike [BERIO] - for kids - @ BMR for 29.99

Just happened to see this when I switched to BMR to check on some home reno supplies since Reno pissed me off cancelling my order (see the Dewalt 12V thread).
Found this and I'm much happier getting this for my little one, instead of that Dewalt set. :)

No idea what these bikes go for, but shipping is free with $35 spend or more, so I added some solar lights that I needed anyway.

There is a RED version too (but looks OOS) here.

BMR is a Quebec chain but they ship across Canada.

Cheers

From experience I would say it's probably easier to teach your kid how to ride a bike with these than it is to start with training wheels then take them off.

My two kids 3-4 y/o are already using training wheels, is it too late for this? What is the recommended age? Tires are 12 inches which seem small..?

Probably a little on the small side for your kids. My son outgrew his balance bike at 4.

Take a look at clearance and sale section I guess. I picked up a 50ft garden hose for $25 to get free shipping.

I got free shipping to BC, so my assumption would be yes!

I think it's a generational shift, and balance bikes are the new normal. We didn't have balance bikes when I was young, at least I don't think we did. Anyways, both my kids went from balance bikes to regular bikes without the need for training wheels. In fact, we just shifted one over last week and I'm surprised how easy it was.

Of course there will be outliers.

agreed, these balance bikes are more effective than training wheels for teaching.
first daughter learned two wheels few months before her 4th birthday.
second daughter learned two wheels a few days ago, she turns 5 in August.

instead of kids already knowing how to pedal, and trying to learn balance, this is the opposite. they know how to balance, they just need to remember to pedal.

Can vouch for these balance bikes. My 2 year old started with this last year. He turns 4 in September and is riding 2 wheels already. The hard part for him learning to ride his regular bike wasn't the pedaling, it was braking. He was so accustomed to braking with his feet, that he stopped pedaling to place his feet on the ground to stop. That lasted about 2 weeks.

agreed, my 4yr old still uses her feet on the ground to slow down as well.

Can anybody tell me how high is the lowest seat setting? My 2 yo is not tall enough to ride his wooden balance bike yet.
